‘I no longer play the victim, you’re to blame’.
High octane hip hop with a strong message, the new video from LA based rapper Souleye goes a long way to explaining why this artist in particular has captured so many imaginations since a breakout tour with Alanis Morissette in 2012. In the three years since, Souleye has spent plenty of time honing his new songs, his sound and his ideas and is now ready to unleash them in new album ‘Shapeshifting’.
‘The Victim’ is the latest glimpse of the album, with the video released less than a week ago and already clocking up an impressive number of views for an independent artist.
Few artists work with lyrics in the same way Souleye does, taking inspiration from the psychadelic and mixing them with personal experience to make something ultimately very different. Fingers crossed the album will have plenty more where this came from.
