Heems' First Solo Video: "Soup Boys"
This probably won't get Heems invited to the White House, but hey, you never know. The Queens rapper -- from the now defunct Das Racist -- appears in front of a green-screened collage of random news clips for "Soup Boys (Pretty Drones)" from his latest mixtape, Wild Water Kingdom. While the track seems mostly political ("drones want to kill"), lyrics also veer into drug use ("waiting for the man to put a gram in my hand") and product placement (Lexus, Nike, Motorola, Toyota Corola etc.) and, according to Rap Genius, a "soup boy" is a guy who's been dumped by a girl. If you're really interested in drones, you might want to check out the PBS documentary Rise of the Drones that's airing tomorrow night, January 23.
