Ho99o9 Release GTA Inspired ‘Pigs Want Me Dead’ Music Video

Industrial hip-hop outfit Ho99o9 have shared their new music video for “Pigs Want Me Dead.”

The clip, directed by Tyler Bradberry, plays out like a bloody, violent game of Grand Theft Auto, which is pretty standard for the game. Ho99o9’s avatars focus their destruction on police property. The video also features a voiceover from comedian Eric Andre warning viewers of the video’s graphic nature. Written in the wake of ongoing protests against police brutality and racisms, the song has a similar vibe to Body Count’s controversial 1992 single “Cop Killer.”

Watch the video below.

Last month, Ho99o9 released the double A-side single “Christopher Dorner”/”Pray or Prey.” The group premiered the songs during an appearance on the Black Power Live virtual music festival, where Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker joined them for the performance.
