have shared a fan-made music video for The Hate Is Real, taken from latest album .
The band recently launched a competition requesting fans to send in their own videos for the track, and they have now chosen their favourite.
The winning video was created by Seby Martinez and features Body Count, including vocalist, alongside characters such as the Grim Reaper, all made entirely out of puppets.
The juxtaposition between the lyrical content depicting the American political landscape and the use of puppets makes the video all the more effective. With lines such as “I’m from L.A where the red try kill the blue” and “’I’m from the place where the kids hate the fuckin’ cops / Where the street violence never stops” the track’s title gains even more weight — this shit is real, but we’re gonna use puppets to highlight the god damn insanity of it all.
This year, Body Count won the Grammy forat the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards for their track Bum-Rush, also featured on Carnivore.
