Rack SquareSoft Surveys Dejection In Video For “Troubled Bby”
Confronting apathy, loss, and depression, the new video for “Troubled Bby” by local MC Rack SquareSoft is a short but sound examination of complicated emotions and perspectives within the confines of hip-hop.
Taken from the August 2018 record Paper Angels — one of five records released by the hip-hop artist last year — the song is a somber observation, tempered only by SquareSoft’s unique vocal delivery, leaning hard on the emo side of emo-rap. The video, shot by Xeneray Bambara, captures the young artist making sense of life in everyday situations, from a corner sidewalk to a beverage aisle of a nearby convenience store. In these shots, Rack SquareSoft performs with a restless demeanor, further cementing the complicated and fraught nature of this song’s lyrical message.
