Oveous Maximus – “In The Name Of” | Music Video

Enigmatic New York rapper/poet Oveous Maximus opts for more tranquil surroundings for his newly released promo video “In The Name Of.” With settings which create the illusion of him rapping underwater, the former Def Poetry Jam alumni recites an emotive tale surrounding this own personal issues of family bereavement and industry disillusionment, as the Gabriel Guzman directed visuals aid his apparent depiction of drowning amidst a sea of torment.

A one shot video which required the wordsmith to rap four times as fast to capture the effect, “In The Name Of” is taken from Oveous’ forthcoming album Kill Your Myth. Press play and become engulfed in Oveous’ voyage through pain and self discovery.
