High Society – Back Seat (My Mind) [Video]
Toronto, ON – Higher Learning Culture collective member, High Society, just dropped new visuals for “Back Seat (My Mind)” off his debut Substance Abuse EP (released in June 2013). Shoot, yo. This is ferocious. High Society comes in on a monstrous self-produced beat, and releases his hungry rap game fury:”You took the back seat in life/ I can’t live like that.”
With a name like High Society – it’d be way too easy for HS to brand himself as a weed rapper. I mean, there’s no doubt he gets high. And he’s not really shy about praising sizzurp, and all that.
But he goes beyond his Substance Abuse to bring us to another level. His drug-use rhymes are a gateway metaphor to explain other parts of his life. Like his homies (“They get me high/ When I’m feeling low”). And his fervour for life (“B*tch/ I’m on everything”). He also has excellent taste in bucket hats.
