Young Fathers 'Queen Is Dead'

Watch African hip-hop trio Young Fathers' new music video for "Queen Is Dead."

Scottish/Liberian/Nigerian trio Young Fathers just dropped a(nother) cryptic, black-and-white video for Tape Two single "Queen Is Dead." The track is a highly experimental and aggressive sonic attack that ties in mentions of beriberi, monetary gains, Queen Mary I aka Bloody Mary, and  America. It's a definite departure from their recent  vulnerable highlight "I Heard." Watch the video below and check out Young Fathers' Africa In Your Earbuds mixtape for more.
