Labtekwon Shares "Onyxx Sphinxx" Video From Forthcoming Album
- Words: Patric Fallon
Baltimore's leftfield hip-hop MC/producer Labtekwon just shared this video for the song "Onyxx Sphinxx," which is taken from his forthcoming album, NEXT: Baltimore Basquiat and the Future Shock. While the video may seem lacking in the realms of budget or linear narrative (and appears to have been made by the artist alone), it is chock full of soulful crooning and heartfelt flows from the eccentric vocalist, which are paired well with an understated, orchestral instrumental and images of Labtekwon delivering words to the camera in all sorts of seemingly unrelated locations. If nothing else, the video for "Onyxx Sphinxx" is a taste of what to expect from the hungry, self-starting artist's new record when it's released August 3.
