Moodie Black has never been a crew afraid of taking a stance, and there has always been a sense of creative freedom fostered by K that was admittedly influenced by artists like Kanye West. It should come as no surprise, then, that the latest video from the dynamite Lucas Acid, a little diddy about unrestricted thought and acceptance of self known as Freedom, would fall in an eerily similar trajectory with Kanye‘s latest batch of polarizing statements and actions, a fact which was not missed by K in preparing the video and its rollout. All of that jazz aside, this video is showing Moodie Black honing in on their well-developed aesthetic in a way that may finally be palatable to listeners and viewers that continue to front. Then again, the information age does not equal the enlightenment era, so maybe artists like Moodie Black will continue to break new ground that will be recognized far too late.

Morgan from OVRLD will tell you… on one of Moodie Black‘s last trips into town, they were playing new tunes. When they dropped Sway, us fans and the new listeners got H Y P E. With the specter of the Lucas Acid album release on the horizon, I am happy that Sway is the pre-release single, and even more happy that K is getting to voice the experience of efforts to bring trans-awareness to the table. This song could shape up to be both the jam and a possible benchmark moment all in one.

Moodie Black certainly marches to the beat of their own drummer, nobody can deny that. The outfit continues to push the boundaries of what music can be and how it can affect the listener, both emotionally and intellectually. With the upcoming release of LUCASACID on the horizon, K has been extremely cognizant of providing enough information for the listener to be receptive to whatever the project will deliver. Between the website, a visit on the Inside The Rapper’s Studio podcast with Jonathan Brown, and the long running Moodhouse podcast (now in its 4th season), anyone wanting to get hip can do so easily. Word on the street is that the album can drop at anytime, and my advice is to be there when it does.
