Rich Kidd – I’d Be Lying [Video]
Toronto, ON – One of Toronto’s brightest MC’s and producers, Rich Kidd premiered the video for his single “I’d Be Lying” yesterday via VICE/Noisey, the third offering from his latest mixtape In My Opinion [DOWNLOAD]. After the far-reaching response to his first two singles – “SYKE” and “Can I Get A (Bom Bom)” – Rich follows through on the buzz with another powerful visual treatment, cementing his position as one of the most compelling artists coming out of Canada today. Produced by DJ Dahi (Kendrick Lamar “Money Trees”) who crafts a glitchy and layered beat for Rich to lay his rhymes on, this shows the lyricist at his best- taking a hard look into the mirror and sharing his inner thoughts with the world, proving once again the unique character and vision of the artist. The video was directed by Andrew Stephenson for Replay Entertainment.
“This song is about me coming to terms with shit in my life and being real with myself. I usually smile and brush shit off like nothing can dent my armour but in my head I have insecurities and doubts like the next man. The same way you got to live with regrets, you also have to live with the truth. It’s inescapable. Many try and hide from their own truths because they fear failure, non-acceptance, or maybe it’s a pride issue. Either way, this is me venting because I felt I needed to. I’d be lying if I said this wasn’t one of my more personal songs but I’d be dying if I didn’t share it with you.”
