Skrillex and Damian Marley team up for a monster mashup of dubstep and dancehall in “Make It Bun Dem,” and in their video for the track, the pair make a statement against oppressive authorities and poverty’s injustice. As an overzealous sheriff leads his cops in foreclosures and evictions, a young man and his father watch police terrorize their neighborhood. To ward them off, the young man performs a raindance in his backyard, dispelling the cops with a supernatural storm. Knowing the sheriff and his cronies will soon return, father and son prepare another ritual, conjuring up a phoenix spirit. When the boss cop arrives, his underlings ditch him, leaving him at the mercy of the young man’s immense power.
“Make It Bun Dem” is available now.
