A year after first teasing a collaboration with rappers Mac Miller and MadeinTYO, Carnage finally released his star-studded single "Learn How to Watch" Thursday night. He isn't making us wait nearly as long for the visuals, though, dropping a crisp Cole Bennett-directed video Friday.
"I always like to bring out the best in an artist, especially when I respect them," Carnage tells Complex, explaining why he brought together the group of high-profile collaborators. "Mac, Tokyo, and our director Cole Bennett are all artists I respect and I just want to see everybody around me win; Cole Bennett is like the new age Hype Williams."
One of today's most in-demand video directors, Bennett is responsible for shaping the look of rap's new underground, directing videos for artists like Lil Pump, Ski Mask The Slump God, Trippie Redd, and Lil Xan. The colorful video for "Learn How to Watch" lives up to the hype as the trio meet up for pizza, before Mac Miller raps his whole verse completely stone-faced while holding adorable puppies.
"Learn How to Watch" continues Carnage's recent run of big name rap collaborations, following September's collaborative project with Young Thug, Young Martha. Appearing on Trending Topics with Pigeons & Planes, Carnage said, "[Young Thug] is like a villain, but like one of the cool villains. He's one of the most talented rappers I've ever met in my life. He's just a workhorse. He comes out with hit after hit. I've seen in the studio and he's done like eight songs in one night."
