You might have to sleep with a night light tonight when you catch a glimpse of what’s lurking in Mykki Blanco‘s sinister new video The Initiation. The haunting Ninian Doff-directed video begins with the rap star prowling the starless streets of the city with two-faces (because one just isn’t enough!). Known for her avant-garde productions, Blanco ditches the English language for Latin: “Carpe noctem/carpe diem/ Deo confidimus,”—”Seize the night/seize the day/in God we trust.”—she chants in the song.
 
“The Initiation” is off Blanco’s EP Betty Rubble: The Initiation. Check out the MOCAtv-commissioned video below.
