Learn the Origin of Flying Lotus' Alter Ego Captain Murphy In New Adult Swim Cartoon

FlyLo's You're Dead! drops on October 7th

Long before he was Captain Murphy, he was Flying Lotus. And long before he was Flying Lotus, he went by the name Steven Ellison... When we first heard about the mysterious rapper Captain Murphy, many of us jumped to several conclusions, before FlyLo revealed that it was actually the moniker for his rapper alias. But how did that alias come to be? When precisely was Captain Murphy born? All of these questions, and more, are answered in a new animated video produced by Adult Swim, which examines the origins of the rapper, who will appear on his own album by a different name, You're Dead! (which will also feature contributions from Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg). Watch the origin story below - is it just me, or does he look an animated Rick Ross? You're Dead! drops on October 7th via Warp.
