Watch: Earl Sweatshirt’s “Off Top” Video Disturbingly Animates the American Police State


An animated video of Earl Sweatshirt’s “Off Top” may have just illustrated the reason he titled his last album I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside.The clip is a pithy statement against police aggression towards black men. In his eerie cartoon world, Sweatshirt falls into a pit of fire, runs from the darkness, and is ambushed by gang of white civilians; it’s all anchored by his closing lyric, “I hope the sheriff keep away from me” and bracketed by imagery of a police car set against the American flag and a horrific porcine cartoon of a sheriff.
