Ricky Shabazz and the Boom Bap Boys return to glory with their latest video for Apathy’s single “Stop What Ya Doin,” featuring Celph Titled and production from the legendary DJ Premier. In what’s now become classic Shabazz style, Apathy and Celph wreak havoc on their surroundings, tearing apart a birthday party for tiny children, shoving unassuming dudes off bridges and docks, and passing piff and OE til their eyes turn red. From start to finish the video muddles typically stark contrasts (young vs. old, the boardroom vs. the streets), culminating in a vivid scene where Apathy and Celph, instead of spitting with a city as the backdrop, rap in the middle of the woods while kids plunge off a bridge and into a river behind the two gritty emcees. Are there any absolutes anymore? I don’t think so. Welcome to the future.
