The US hip-hop project LeX released the single PainKillers yesterday.
The composition tackles a reality which has, and continues to affect, many – addiction to prescription medication. By not sinking in to bitterness or self-pity Painkillers is able to narrate a stronger message.
As regular readers know I am always fully in support of musicians who are prepared to put their own realities of life to inspection for others to dig in to the entrails and make of what they will.
Set to a soundtrack of urban hip-hop the song takes on the powerful – oppressive air of frustration of the genre.
As suggested in the full single name – PainKillers (feat. Mugen! The Human) [Prod. 4k], this is a collaborative piece with Mugen! The Human.
