Money on your mind. Good looking women on your phone. Siblings looking up to you for solutions. battling your demons. Christian and yet not feeling the vibe. Your constituency got a fake for a politician. May be you are an artist yet the dream is dying young as you are. You might be twenty and more – lost you feel. Unthinkable details all this in meditative and devastated tone.
Brian Wade already dropped his mixtape Synesthetic a couple of weeks ago but he has been pulling off single by single for his fans to listen through. The tape is an experimental project a huge diversity in delivery, emotion, inspiration and tone. Unthinkable – is among the most important tracks on that tape. He is so agonized is usual comfy and well assured rapping.
With Unthinkable Brian Wade offers an anthem or a soundtrack for everyone frustrated in this life without clear solutions. Bar for bar; he gives us the pain of being surrounded by problems: music not making sense, role models being foul models, younger brother having a child early, sister needs to go to school. The life of sin so close and yet embraced like it is the best alternative.
Life is hard without a cellular – is a line to show case the excessive addiction to phones many people have. Unthinkable document what it means to be in a spiral of problems, pain and disillusionment. Politicians and their empty promises and you have hit rock-bottom – when all your hopes are shuddered what do you do?
Have a listen and tell us what you think.
