VIDEO: “People” – Sol (dir. by Noah Porter)

Sol and director Noah Porter released the video for “People,” one of two songs from the rapper’s mid-February double single release, “People/Pages.” This well-shot, dramatic clip finds Sol mired in an existential crisis of sorts, torn between a desire for solitude and human companionship.

AUDIO: “People” & “Pages” – Sol

Sol - People Pages

Rapper Sol emerges today from a self-admitted creative drought with two new tracks produced by his squad Nima Skeemz and Elan Wright. On “People” and “Pages” Sol addresses the redemptive roles that his folks and his process contributed in pulling him out of his funk. The tracks are equal parts well-crafted hip-hop and heartfelt confessionals. It’s nice to hear from dude again.

It all comes together like alchemy.

A little Wes Anderson, a little low-budget DIY charm — it’s the nimble BFA crew making it all look easy, as usual. Video directed by Jon Holman, track produced by Nima Skeemz.
