To coincide with the reissue of Corpses, the debut full-length from the Food Chain, which dropped this week on iTunes, Showoff Digital,the group's label headed by Statik Selektah, premiered the video for "Reverse Psychology," a bonus track from the re-release, earlier this week.

The clip features close-ups of the individual MCs during their respective verses interspersed with live footage of the Food Chain, which has successfully completed the transition from the traditional DJ/MC setup to full band ensemble that it began earlier this year.

The next cut to receive the video treatment will be "F*cc Ni*ggaz," a track featuring Talib Kweli. To that end, the outfit will commence shooting with Kweli in a few weeks, when he returns to Colorado for a string of dates at the Aggie in Fort Collins starting on Wednesday, December 1, followed by a pair of shows with the Food Chain on Thursday, December 2, at Cervantes' and Friday, December 3, at the Belly Up in Aspen. Get a look at "Reverse Psychology" below.
