Ill Bill “Severed Heads of State” ft. El-P

Great things happen when Ill Bill and El-P connect.

Remember “Simian D,” possibly the best, most aggro, song of the NY indie rap Golden era? Well now the two have joined forces once again for the EL-P-produced “Severed Heads of State” bringing us all of the misanthropy, aggression and paranoia we’d expect from guys who were in Non Phixion and Company Flow.

The surreal clip features all types of subversive stock footage–lest we forget that Bill’s the brother that gave us songs like “Black Helicopters” and “I Shot Reagan.”  “Severed Heads . . .” is a great appetizer for Bill’s upcoming LP The Grimy Awards which will feature production from DJ Premier, Muggs and Large Professor among others and guest shots from Bad Brains frontman H.R., A-Trak Meyhem Lauren and more.
