Isaiah Rashad recently released his debut studio album The Sun’s Tirade, and to keep the momentum going he’s now released the music video to one of Tirade‘s tracks: “Park.”
Directed by aplus (who also did “Free Lunch“) the video finds Rashad cruising the city streets with some friends, as they hotbox a car and play a game of cards. The camera swivels back and forth between everyone in the vehicle, making you feel like you’re an extra passenger in all of the fun.
Prior to “Park” Rashad also dropped the visuals for “4r Da Squaw,” which finds the Chattanooga rapper hanging out with his son at California’s Santa Monica Pier. The two dance, play games and enjoy the sand, all while dollar amounts are placed above their heads and the people around them.
For awhile it looked as if fans weren’t going to get any new material from Rashad. During a press run for the album Isaiah Rashad unveiled how he almost got dropped from TDE for substance abuse.
“I f**ked up pretty bad — I almost got dropped like three times,” Rashad said during in an interview with the Juan Epstein podcast. “I was too stressed out all the time and I kept popping pills, I kept f**king drinking…I would get up in the morning and go buy a pint.”
“Top sent me away from the squad,” Rashad added. “You ain’t heard from me? You ain’t heard me drop s**t until I got my s**t together. I got my s**t together a little bit, ‘Nelly’ came out. I got my s**t together a little bit, ‘Smile’ came out. Now I got my s**t together.”
