We’ve got a new love for Italian rapper Mecna and his video for the hard-hitting song Super. It features a full on typographical throw-down of italian lyrics, rendered in flashes of the lyrics in white font over the underground wandering artist. If you’re wondering, the instrumental track is Ratatat’s, Loud Pipes and you can find a free download of Mecna’s version at mecnamusic.com. Anyone want to try identifying all the beautiful fonts here?
