Escape Your Love – [SSGKobe] ft. [Trippie Redd]

There are some artists that I hear for the first time and I’m immediately entranced, but then there are some that take me a few listens before I can truly grasp their sound and appreciate their music. Somehow, I wasn’t all in on SSGKobe when I first found out about him, but after listening to his music a few times through early on, he immediately became one of my favorite up-and-comers and I was baffled that I let myself sleep for as long as I did.

Nonetheless, at this point, there is never a new song from the Louisiana phenom that I don’t tap in with, and his most recently released record “Escape Your Love” featuring Trippie Redd has definitely been one of my favorite records ever since it dropped. Thanks to the production from Jaasu, Charlie Heat, and Jonnywood, these two talents are given an instrumental that suits both of their strengths, and what I didn’t realize until after the song is that they’re two very similar artists in terms of their style.

At the same time, Kobe is a bit more reserved or optimistic almost while Trippie seems to let himself go a bit crazier which comes with a slightly darker aesthetic as well. Regardless, they are two talents that complement each other wonderfully, so when they got back together to film a music video, I knew it was going to be even more epic.

There really aren’t too many recognizable settings from this world, in all honesty, but instead, they take things to a mystical land full of colors, spirits, and emotion, setting a perfect vibe for this record itself. It’s kind of one of those visuals that you need to see for yourself to understand, but between the color vibrancy and certain storylines of love, entrapment, and addiction, the visual for “Escape Your Love” is certainly not something you want to sleep on for even another minute moving forward.
