Red PillÂ releases his new album and Video, “Instinctive Drowning”.
Red Pillâ€™s newest album, â€œInstinctive Drowning,â€ is his most personal opus to date. Collaborating with producer Ill Poetic, the new album is an extremely personal and vulnerable composition. The project is a glimpse into the depths of Red Pillâ€™s psyche, balancing both tragedy and hope in a way that is ultimately sincere and beautiful.Â Accompanying the album release, the Detroit rapper is bringing us his video for the titular song. Directed by Ason Intrigue, the video is tempered and paced to perfection, the visuals revealing the underlying meditation. Even through the tragic imagery, the video is more zen than masochism.
Consider yourself lucky if you canâ€™t empathize with Red Pill. No one channels bleakness better than the blue-collar Michigan MC, whose sophomore solo LP for Mello Music Group, “Instinctive Drowning” plays out like the ghost of Bukowski on a snarling bender. His songs are lifelines for the doomed, death letters written for fatigued skeptics, the anthems of an existence precariously balanced among a fifth of gin and a loaded .38 revolver aimed at the temple.
