HIpHopDX Premiere – MC Bravado kicked off 2019 a brand new man. The former English trainer has entered the stage of his life the place he’s now a full-fledged musician, leaving his educating profession behind. So, it’s solely applicable his first visible of the 12 months is for the monitor, “Brand New Bag.”
The video sees the Baltimore MC delve into surrealist territory, juxtaposing habit and getting away with homicide. Produced solely by Militant Marxman, the monitor comes from Like Water For Hangovers and presents a darkly comedic tackle overcoming one’s vices.
“‘Brand New Bag’ is about how our vices can really feel like our greatest associates, even whereas they’re destroying us,” Bravado tells RealStreetRadio. “Our vices can disguise in plain sight; they are often enjoyable. We develop that dependency on a bodily and emotional degree and weave these vices into the material of our existence. I felt one of the simplest ways to convey this concept on display screen was to make my associates within the video symbolic of various vices.
“And the one technique to put off them was to lure them into that enjoyable atmosphere the place we shared lots of our ‘finest occasions.’ We’re all liable to relapse as nicely, so we needed to get rid of ‘the bag’ containing all of our vices in the course of nowhere and completely out of putting distance. We needed this to be enjoyable, self-aware, disorienting and in some way sobering on the similar time, and I actually assume we completed that.”
As Bravado says, the Mike Jon-helmed visible is “equal components fuzzy and sobering, openly spotlighting Bravado’s adept skillset.”
