Plenty MCs Aim To Bring Back ’90s Vibes, But Red Pill Has More Specific Plans
Michigan MC Red Pill has amassed a five-year body of work, producing savvy, Everyman Rap music. The Mello Music Group artist rhymes about wishing for sustainability in a career he’s dreamed to achieve, self-medicating through stress, and wishing more talented artists got the limited amount of industry shine.
“90s Money” is a cool animated visual that takes some of the Ugly Heroes member’s ideas, and builds upon them. With vivid colors (reminiscent of the early 1990s fashion and artwork), R.P. raps about how bringing back the decade for the sake of art, fashion, and culture is one thing, but he wants the papes’ to be able to have the career. Certainly, the song shows skill and substance, side-by-side. This one appears on 2015’s Day Drunk EP.
If Red Pill released Look What This World Did To Us (which is available for free stream) in the 1990s, would his art be treated differently?
