Weight – [Redveil]

Seventeen year old DMV prodigy Redveil returns to Lyrical Lemonade with a powerful song & visual entitled “Weight.” Conceptually, the video was intentionally crafted to keep viewers on their toes, as it highlights the artist narrowly escaping police custody. With a multitude of resulting/uncertain obstacles he must face, an impending ‘weight’ torments Redveil’s psyche, coupled with scenarios of possible detriment. Moreoer, the mature commentary on race, policing, and point-blank injustice solidifies that the artist’s youth hasn’t limited his scope of knowledge. Visually I immediately thought of the Safdie Brother’s fantastic film Good Time, due to bustling, high-stress environment with an uneasy atmosphere. Watch the official music video for “Weight” below; a three-way collaboration of direction between Tyler Shuler, Redveil, and YSSHUA.
