Animator RUFFMERCY has woven his magic once again, this time for Detroit rapper Zelooperz' latest single I Should Be Dead.

The video matches the anxious energy of the artist's vocals with equally frenetic, colourful freestyle animated shapes and hand-drawn typography. The footage was shot by Devin Williams and Myron Watkins and was sent to the Bristol-based illustrator and animator to get the full RM treatment.

A worthy addition to a body of work including his awesome visuals for Knxwledge's Flyinglizrds, and loads of others.
