Video: Captain Murphy – Duality (NSFW)

The covert Captain Murphy drops a mixtape. Can you guess who it is?

Posted By ACCLAIM Staff |

The mysterious, still unidentified rapper Captain Murphy has released a new video/mixtape Duality, which can only really be described as a video and audio treat.

French film-maker Xavier Magot uses a montage of retro video clips, porn, cult initiation tapes and overlaid text to assault the viewer with a barrage of images on the themes of cults and brainwashing for 35 minutes. Drawing heavily on the imagery of cult leader Marshall Applewhite, the man who led America’s Heaven’s Gate mass suicide in 1997, the video plays out an abstract, tongue-in-cheek guide to being a cult leader.

Featuring production from Samiyam, Flylo, Madlib, Teebs, Clams Casino, TNGHT, Just Blaze, and Jeremiah Jae, Duality has re-sparked the rabid speculation on who Captain Murphy is/are. With an identity presented simply as a defiant cartoon character, Captain Murphy continues to keep us guessing with tweets that only shed light on who he isn’t (‘I think some people are probably gonna be mad as hell when they realize I’m not from OF [Odd Future]. oh well.. keep talking. make em follow’) But even then, that could just be throwing us off the scent. Stay tuned as we let Captain Murphy take us on this journey to who knows where?
