Irangeles (Iran/Los Angeles) lyricist Malkovich presents the music video for “Through The Trees“, from his new album Great Expectations, written and recorded in New York City, New Orleans, Atlanta and Los Angeles after Malkovich gave up his home and possessions to travel indefinitely.
“Expectations” is produced by L.A. beatsmith Josh The Goon, best known for his work with Freddie Gibbs and DaVinci. The video was shot in Queens, New York City by Mazzi of S.O.U.L. Purpose and was edited by J Spealz. Expectations is Malkovich’s followup to his Ayatollah Presley mixtape hosted by deejay/producer House Shoes (watch the video to the Dibia$e-produced “WTF”), and videos to four Expectations tracks – “Lies” (watch), “What I Know” (watch), “Palms” (watch) and “Through The Trees” (watch) have already been released.
“Malkovich is owning everyone in the current scene, and you better believe it,” says HitTheFloor Magazine. DJ Premier played the Great Expectations cut “Bedbugs” on the January 18 edition of his Live From Headqcourterz mixshow.
Great Expectations is available as a free download for a limited time.
