Red Pill releases his new single and says…Â “Fuck Your Ambition”.
Consider yourself lucky if you canâ€™t empathize with Red Pill. No oneÂ channels bleakness better than the blue-collar Michigan MC, whoseÂ sophomore solo LP for Mello Music Group, “Instinctive Drowning” playsÂ out like the ghost of Bukowski on a snarling bender. His songs areÂ lifelines for the doomed, death letters written for fatigued skeptics,Â the anthems of an existence precariously balanced among a fifth of ginÂ and a loaded .38 revolver aimed at the temple. Look for his new album “Instinctive Drowning“Â on August 26.
“The American Dream is one of the most dangerous ideologies our country has created. It assumes that if you’re smart enough and work hard enough, anyone can climb the socioeconomic ladder. It neglects the reality that many in our country and in our world begin their lives with a socioeconomic head-start; be it race, sex, money…
The privileged and advantaged can’t help but shove their “hard-work'” and “can-do attitude” in our faces, masquerading their lottery style births as some kind of ambition that the rest of us don’t have. “Fuck Your Ambition.” We don’t love it and don’t believe it.” – Red Pill
