Tony Black has gone crazy in his new video for the single, “Save Me.”
The Penn State rapper, who calls the Bay Area his home, comes out swinging with verses that bite like bear traps and a chorus that catches you like fish hooks. Blurred visuals from the video combined with Tony Black’s dizzying flow gives listeners an almost out of body experience. The only thing keeping you grounded in reality is a clever lyricism and a beat that demands your body’s attention.
“The basic concept of ‘Save Me’ is like a different side of people that everyone doesn’t really get to see,” said Tony Black. “Like it’s a part of people that if someone saw you acting crazy like that, they’d be like no way that’s Tony.”
That’s where the masks come in to play.
There is also an allusion to the mind altering potential of drugs and the “let’s get weird” lifestyle. The video for “Save Me” is an idealistic portrayal of the outcome of a night where you just decided to lose your mind for the night and be give in to that wild spirit that’s confined by societal conventions.
The track will appear on Tony Black’s next mixtape that is currently untitled, but for now go crazy over the music video for “Save Me.”
