Verbal Burglary

Mani Mazinani

2008, 04:02 minutes, colour, English


This video is a response to a single page out of a paperback dictionary. Mazinani’s hip-hop alter-ego, Scalez, and his partner in rhyme, Grayto, literally and lyrically tear the page out of the book. Video formalism meets underground hip-hop.
