Above, we’ve got the latest visuals from rapper MF Kush, a song entitled “Release.” The song is in the drill family, in that the beat and the flow sounds like your typically drill track. However, what differentiates this one–and what made me want to post about it–is that Kush uses that flow and sound to speak on positivity and trying to live one’s best life. All in all, this one grabbed my attention because of the positivity exuded throughout the track and the accompanying visuals.
Kush wants to save the youth from going down the path of murdering each other or resorting to violence to solve issues. This is something that’s also touched on in the song and the video. In the video, two men get into an altercation and one ends up shot dead, all while Kush chants that the streets don’t love you and just want to have you on an RIP shirt. He also touches briefly on the mental effects the street life can have on a person. I like this one because it’s catchy, it’s mainstream-friendly to a degree, but also has a lot of substance. It’s kind of like a “Dumb it Down” for the drill generation.
Check out the visuals above and do the thing: support dope music in all its forms.
