Home-made vocals and clear personality meet with a dreamy production style for this scene-setting, hard-hitting and somewhat vintage new single from Dollarful.
An up and coming independent artist from Massachusetts, Dollarful keeps things honest and up front throughout this true-story-based release. The track maintains a level of creative freedom to back this up, driving with laid-back raps but conceptual weight and darkness, progressing into cinematic fragments depicting spoken word and horrifying scenes of violence in the streets.
The DIY recording style re-emphasises the weight of the topic, placing the artist and subsequently the listener right in the centre of the turmoil. It’s an unsettling progression, capturing attention with ease and stopping its audience in their tracks. Meanwhile the beat goes on, quietly moving things along and refusing to pause even with the pain and struggle of the story.
