Scroobius Pip – Thou Shalt Always Kill lyrics | Motion Graphics

18 Mar

Thou shalt give equal worth to tragedies that occur in non-english speaking countries as to those that occur in english speaking countries.
Thou shalt remember that guns, bitches and bling were never part of the four elements and never will be.
Thou shalt not make repetitive generic music,
thou shalt not make repetitive generic music,
thou shalt not make repetitive generic music,
thou shalt not make repetitive generic music.

Thou shalt not pimp my ride.
Thou shalt not scream if you wanna go faster.
Thou shalt not move to the sound of the wickedness.
Thou shalt not make some noise for Detroit.
When I say “Hey” thou shalt not say “Ho”.
When I say “Hip” thou shalt not say “Hop”.
When I say, he say, she say, we say, make some noise… kill me.
Thou shalt not quote me happy.
Thou shalt not shake it like a polaroid picture.
Thou shalt not wish you girlfriend was a freak like me.
Thou shalt spell the word “Pheonix” P-H-E-O-N-I-X not P-H-O-E-N-I-X, regardless of what the Oxford English Dictionary tells you.
Thou shalt not express your shock at the fact that Sharon got off with Bradley at the club last night by saying “Is it”.

Thou shalt think for yourselves.

And thou shalt always… Thou shalt always kill!

Above is the sample of the track “Thou Shalt Always Kill” by Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip. The lyrics are very interesting and I am going to do some research on the specific quotes in order to get a better idea of how I am going to incorporate illustrations within my kinetic typoghraphy.

“Thou shalt remember that guns, bitches and bling were never part of the four elements and never will be”:

For this quote I visualise having three illustrations of guns, bitches and bling in circles, to then be pushed aside by the true four elements of hip hop (Rapping, Djing, Graffiti and Breaking). This will be happening on the top half of the window, with some text appearing to the bottom of the window.

Thou Shalt not move to the sound of the wickedness”

The sound of the wickness is a 90’s hip-hop track by an artist called Tzant, which is very repetetive and “90’s” which is probably a reason why Scroobius Pip hates the song.

“Thou shalt not scream if you wanna go faster”

The song scream if you wanna go faster is produced by Geri Halliwell. For this line of the track I would like to emphasise the term faster, possibly by animating the word faster to zoom away from the screen.

“Thou shalt not make repetitive generic music,
thou shalt not make repetitive generic music,
thou shalt not make repetitive generic music,
thou shalt not make repetitive generic music.”

For this part I have a number of ideas. I want to maybe have all four lines appear on the screen and remain there. Another idea is for the word ‘generic’, to use a very boring generic font such as helvetica, and leave the remaining text the same that I have been using throughout the video.

“Thou shalt not shake it like a polaroid picture”

This is a reference to the song ‘Hey Ya’ by OutKast. in the music video, the band and the croud are all shaking polaroid pictures. I want to try and illustrate a polaroid picture in illustrator and attempt to animate a flash on the polaroid as well as seeing the iconic film come out of the camera. This is a difficult feature because the animation will be complicated, but an alternative would be to place the text within the shape of a polaroid film and let it slowly fade in like the film does when it takes a photo.

“Thou shalt spell the word “Pheonix” P-H-E-O-N-I-X not P-H-O-E-N-I-X, regardless of what the Oxford English Dictionary tells you.”

this part of the track is extremely fast and will be difficult to animate for the viewer to understand. the way that Scroobius Pip says it is quite clear, so I am going to attempt to make the animation fast so that it is intentionally difficult to understand to refer to the lyric itself.
