Earlier this spring, billy woods announced his latest album, History Will Absolve Me, with an April 10th release date. Since then, he's leaked a number of tracks, including the Roc Marciano- and Masai Bey-featured lead single "Body Of Work" and the most recently released non-album track "Frozen Sunlight," which features Open Mike Eagle and MarQ Spekt. Now, with April 10th finally upon us, woods is celebrating his album release with a video for the album's latest single, "Duck Hunt."
The song, produced by A.M. Breakups, is one of the eeriest on History Will Absolve Me, built around dark, bubbling synths, muted horns, and a steady drum break, which does well to compliment woods' fluid, complex flow, with bars like, "Black Robert Baden Powell, never caught without the ratchet/ Grass like Wimbeldon; wood racquet/ Rap like a simpleton, see new tax bracket/ So-called goons, turns out they schools was magnet." The video, directed by Crosby, fits the track's grimy, claustrophobic vibe, shot in cluttered rooms and decrepit hallways, red and blue tints serving to both outline and obscure.
