AUDIO & VIDEO: Baby Jesus – Raz Simone

Baby Jesus - Raz Simone

Thus far in 2015 Raz Simone is outpacing all other rappers in the Town in terms of artistic output and bold statements. He’s turned this very website into his own virtual PR firm with a steady barrage of video and audio drops. He’s rarely taken a day off, it seems, and today is no exception.

Baby Jesus — available for free download here — is Simone’s third album project of the year and deals heavily with ideas of self-actualization, self-worth and the redemptive properties associated with those two things. Like his Macklemore Privilege & Chief On Keef Violence EP, the message isn’t always cut and dry; it’s complicated by meddling factors like the power of your own subconscious, your environment and the demands placed upon you by the company you keep. A world of cognitive dissonance, indeed.

VIDEO: “All In My Mind” – Raz Simone (dir. by Jacob Hill)

Part lament, part performance piece, Raz Simone’s new video “All In My Mind” taps into the sexually and emotionally vacant sub-layers of the human psyche. Watch Raz ignore cops (and their mounts), curious passersby, even a bad woman in a flowing black dress, for the sake of connecting to the camera. Perhaps, in the midst of a month-and-a-half long stint as the most discussed rapper in the Town, that’s all he feels connected to at this moment. From his upcoming project Baby Jesus (due April 7).

Baby Jesus - Raz Simone

You ever wake up in the morning, take a good long hard look in the mirror and think, Good got-damn that is one sexy-ass motherfucker? Self-worship to the nth degree on Raz Simone’s “Baby Jesus,” from the upcoming album of the same name (due April 7). Raz takes no days off and never has a bad hair day.
