There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
“I Never Knew You,” the first single from Cage’s new album, Depart From Me, is an ode to stalking; the music video, directed by Shia LaBeouf, features a young man perpetrating a B&E at the home of a woman he’s been following while he sings, “It’s like the sky opened up/and God handed you directly to me.” This isn’t just a bad first impression for people who had never heard of the rapper prior to LaBeouf lending his golden touch, it’s also an inaccurate one: The only person Cage regularly harms is himself. —-Mike Riggs
