If you follow this artist on Twitter or if you’ve heard any of his songs such as Beater Up or Sneeze on a Bitch (which features Ugly God) then you know that a filter is something he does not possess. In addition to proving that he doesn’t give a damn, the cyclops shades wearing rapper has also proved that he’s definitely an artist you want to keep your eye on.

Rashad Starks “Playing With Fire” Is a Beautiful Contrast Between Lit Times & Dark Thoughts

A project that perfectly contrasts an artists dialect about internal conflict with crazy lit beats paired with insane animation and intricate storytelling to bring the subject matter to life is always appreciated. Throw some top notch production in the mix by producers such as DEIPSET and Yung Kifo in the mix and you’ve got Rashad Starks newest project “Playing With Fire”

The project does a wonderful job of tackling the artists feelings regarding suicide, depression, anxiety, being a college drop out and feelings of low self worth while at the same time displaying the artists motivation to overcome these feelings and be a “greater man”. The project opens up with “With Fire”, On which the artists gives pretty much a run down on what the whole tape is going to be about. The artist also showcases his singing abilities on the opening track as well. On “No Ls” he features Dell Fargo and speaks on his desire to persevere and keep grinding. On DRIP, another “turn up” song the rapper adds a feature from menacing rapper Hooks Ventura, adding to the eerie, dark effect of the track. In contrast to the “most lit” theme he goes for in the previous tracks, Stark flips the script and discusses very dark thoughts on “Fahrenheit 451” where he speaks on his feelings of depression, alcoholism and suicidal thoughts. On “Amen”, a more upbeat song, the rapper speaks on his feelings on religion and closes out the tape with a prayer asking God to help him to be a more appreciative, focused man.
