*The lyric video for Lauryn Hill’s “Consumerism” hit the web with a barrage of visceral images that whoosh by with every dizzying word she spits.
Ben Franklin’s face on the $100 bill represents “corporate greed,” prescription pills float across the screen as stand-ins for “paranoia skepticism, schizophrenic mechanisms” and images of war-torn countries scream “self-destruct” during the hook.
This may be just a lyric video, but it’s a pretty elaborate one, directed by Hill and Jon Casey.
The world’s injustices are on display alongside Hill’s angry lyrics, leaving no doubt as to the rapper’s current state of mind, post-prison.
