L.A. rap stalwart Bread of Kaliwild links with fellow hip-hop luminaries Sadat Xand Lord Jamar for his inspirational and thoughtful new single/video, “Star”. Bolstered by Therealasethic's soulful and chilled backdrop, the trio trade verses filled with insightful and uplifting lyrics. Bread sets the tone with his laidback flow followed by Sadat's high-pitched vocals and Lord Jamar's punchy cadence.
The video is directed by Gabe Evans, while Dani Chaya provided the character illustrations and William “Dolla” Chapman did the animation. Together, they provide Bread and his guests with a colorful, uplifting visual canvas that hip-hop fans of any generation can enjoy. The same goes for the message of the track itself, which Bread kicks off with rhymes about overcoming whatever life brings your way while maintaining the blue flame inside you. This theme is reinforced by a strong hook supplied by singer/songwriter, Sirius.
"Star" is taken from Bread’s forthcoming LP, A Breath of Fresh Air due out September 3 via SomeOthaShip Connect/Fat Beats. Pre-order the LP here. The album will also be available for purchase on vinyl and CD.
