Body Count Grapple With Police Brutality in 'Black Hoodie' Video

Screengrab via YouTube

Body Count are gearing up to release their new album, Bloodlust, later this month. After dropping an intense visual for first single "No Lives Matter," Ice-T and company are sustaining their political furor with "Black Hoodie," a crossover thrash barnstormer doubling as a diatribe against police brutality. Further underscoring this theme is Treach Tribe's visual, which finds the band grappling with an unarmed shooting and performing in black hoodies, a nod to Trayvon Martin, who was wearing the garment when he was shot and killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer in 2012, thereby turning it into a symbol for the Black Lives Matter movement. Watch below.

Bloodlust is out March 31 via Century Media. Pre-order it here.
