Been a minute since we posted Distrakt's handiwork. Besides griding in the rap game, the Colorado Springs-based MC has been hella busy on the visual front, from creating videos for artists like Georgia Ann Muldrow to creating his own video games. And when we scoped his latest claymation short (emphasis here is on short; the clip is barely over 30 seconds long) we couldn't resist sharing it with you. If this whole rap thing doesn't pan out for the dude, he has a huge future in animation. "If you like normal, everyday rappers, you'll hate me," he promises. No hate here, Distrakt. Only love. Check it out.
