Video: Apocraphe – Kate Griffin

Apocraphe is a Paris-based British rapper who first came to my attention early this year. Since then, I’ve really been digging his stuff, culminating in a review of his album The Escapist Handbook back in June. His latest single release Kate Griffin is taken from that album, and comes with a video.

Though I didn’t mention Kate Griffin in my album review, I remember the track well. It’s full of characteristic free-flowing, wordplay lyrics. It’s the lyrics that set Apocraphe apart from your typical modern rapper – touching on subject matter that you’d never expect. Kate Griffin is a fantastic example.

The partially animated video is kept simple to keep your attention on Apocraphe’s flow and the poetry of the lyrics. It’s cleverly done. You can check it out below.
