Moodie Black, a standout group from the Fake Four roster full of massive talent, has always been observant of what other boundary-pushing artists are doing, especially polarizing artists like Kanye West. K has always envisioned her band being as relevant as Ye, while offering a balancing set of opinions, ambitions and skill sets to offset that of the Chicago-based ‘mad genius’. You can imagine, then, that Ye‘s embracing of MAGA, Donald Trump and the Right in general has been fuel for the Moodie Black creative fire. Add to the fact that Fake Four label head (and incredible artist in his own right) Ceschi stopped by the studio to commit a hook to the inspiration, and the result is Ye Death, an observation on living in the madness we do now and feeling like a kite off the string, which is probably very much how Ye feels now (in light of recent reports that he feels ‘used’ by the same political machine he wholeheartedly embraced, and all within the span of about 2 months). K and company always have something deeply introspective and relevant to say about what’s rocking the societal boat, and this is just another notch in the belt. Definitely check it out.

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.
