With Roger Ballen on the cover of our November issue, we are taking a look back at some of the collaborations and projects he has done over the years and probably one of the most well-known is his viral music video sensation and accompaying photography for Die Antwoord's "I Fink U Freeky."

The South African rave-rap posse Die Antwoord have just released their first song and video from the upcoming album 'Donker Mag,' expected February 2014. "Cookie Thumper" is about a girl with a crush on an older local boy just released from prison. The track and the Ninja-directed clip share a surprise 'finish' as Yo-Landi Vizzer plays the female lead, rapping in a high-pitched barrage of Zef slang and English. Enjoy, or try to enjoy this weird new release from a group that never fails to frighten.

From the unconventional and slightly deranged South African hip-hop trio Die Antwoord, comes this incredibly awesome/creepy video for "I Fink You Freeky," directed by contemporary photographer Roger Ballen. Phallic imagery abounds, grime and deformity are glorified, and the totality of the weirdness is nothing less than mesmerizing.
