Shot and directed by acclaimed Dutch photographer and filmmaker Ari Marcopoulos, the video for "Piece of Shit" by experimental hip-hop act Ratking features a one-take live performance inside the crew's dilapidated and graffiti-strewn practice space in Brooklyn. The resulting documentary-style short film is gritty and raw, recorded on Super 16mm and showcasing Marcopoulos' signature muted black and white style. The sound, meanwhile, is reactionary and aggressive, defying easy categorization while reflecting the hardscrabble attitude of the group's New York City roots. Check out the video below, and find the song on Ratking's WIKI93 EP, available now directly from XL Recordings.
