Watch Danny Brown’s Disturbing ‘Pneumonia’ Video

MC is chained, hurled through air by unseen forces in clip for ‘Atrocity Exhibition’ cut

Danny Brown becomes a human puppet in his new "Pneumonia" video. The MC is hoisted into the air by a series of metal chains. The invisible puppeteer is never revealed, but Brown's struggles are interspersed with footage of Ronald Reagan.

"Pneumonia," produced by Evian Christ, has a chain-linked beat – eerie and punctuated by sudden bursts of activity. Meanwhile, Brown's narrator wallows in a bleary cycle of drugs, booze, and sex: "Geeked up, geeked up, pop a pill just like Mike and Ikes/ Head sent me straight to the moon with a mac tonight/ Running low on alcohol, nigga gotta make a call/ Stay afloat, try not to choke."

"Pneumonia" appeared recently on Brown's Atrocity Exhibition LP – the MC's first album since 2013's Old.
