Watch the Music Video for C. Brown's Control You by Alex Bieler
C. Brown in the video for Control You, shot by Howie Glover

When C. Brown dreams, things get a little crazy. At least, that's what the music video for his Armen Grigoryan-produced track "Control You" would seem to suggest. The 2013 40 under 40 inductee teamed up with frequent collaborator and digital dreamer Howie Glover, the man behind Threegloves Productions, and it's a doozy.

You might have seen Brown in a few of Glover's works in the past, including videos for Brown's "Evil All Around Me" and "Mad World," plus that time when Brown clowned around in the video for Whodat Peez's "Demons." Now the talented MC takes on a litany of different roles for the slick Glover-directed "Control You" video, including a mental institution patient, a classical pianist, and, my personal favorite, his grandma.

That not enough for you? Well, maybe the presence of aliens, terrorists, and mind-controlling microchips can intrigue you enough to check out the Glover's fine work behind the lens. The whole video revolves around the snoozing Brown explaining to his grandma over the phone just why he doesn't have a kid yet (reason: the world can really suck). Add Glover deft camera work to Brown's dependably slick verses and you get another great video out of Threegloves production.

Check out the video for yourself on YouTube or embedded below. It's got some NSFW language in there, so be careful if you're not a fan of some of those four-letter words George Carlin used to talk about.
