A man dying slowly in the truck he calls home. Another, hauling boxes at a market in exchange for a spot in a storage box where he sleeps each night. Immigrants, actors, recovering drug addicts, college students and true blue Angelenos, all trying to rent themselves one more month in the waiting room, one more month for their dreams to come true. This is life in Palms, L.A.’s most diverse and densely populated neighborhood, where Snoop Dogg caught his murder case, and where “everybody’s on their way somewhere else”, as emcee and eight-year resident Malkovich says on his dedication to his adopted home. The people and places of Palms take center stage in the video, directed, filmed and edited firsthand by Malkovich. Shot one month before Kanye West & Jay-Z’s “Otis” video aired, scenes shot against a wall mural of the U.S. flag with a local homeless man inadvertently make this video the polar opposite of ‘Ye and Jay’s celebration of the American dream. Malkovich dropped the Ayatollah Presley mixtape earlier this year, hosted by House Shoes and featuring Prince Po of Organized Konfusion, Dibia$e, Killer Reese of King Fantastic, P.U.D.G.E., Sum, IamOmni and many more.
