Austin-based hip-hop artist Hyder is clearly here to raise the bar of what both an artist and an artistic statement can be. The former poet turned MC is obviously comfortable taking on topics with weight, as he exhibits in Farewell by effortlessly espousing on the trials and tribulations we face from within and without as we attempt to navigate an often stressful and trying world. The raw honesty captured in both the song and the video are moving, and the high quality of the video heightens the entire experience. Definitely check this one out, like and comment on it, and share it around.
