Idle Warship – ‘Driving Me Insane’ | Music Video

April 26th, 2012 | by Max-El

Idle Warship drops the crazy video for Habits of the Heart‘s hard rockin’ 11th track, “Driving Me Insane.” Res plays the role of the (super sexy) absolute lunatic while Talib Kweli gets his Hip-Hop cop on in this R.A. The Rugged Man-written and directed clip.

Didn’t know Mr. Die, Rugged Man, Die was a filmmaker, huh? Well, he’s apparently written at least three screenplays and co-produced a horror-comedy called Bad Biology just a few years ago. It’s insane that you didn’t know that.

The Rugged Man’s comedic eye was definitely at work in this video, as Kweli and Res seem to be having a good ol’ time driving imaginary cars down imaginary highways, punching teddy bears and play-fighting in Kweli’s apartment.

And if that isn’t enough for you, Kweli has also announced the dates for his Prisoner of Conscious tour, kicking off May 18 in Providence, Rhode Island. Check the itinerary below, then peep the video below that. Crazy.
