Following the release of his latest album, 'F*CK LOVE (SAVAGE)' in November this year The Kid Laroi shares a video for his song 'Tragic'. The collaborative tune sees Laroi team up with YoungBoy NBA and Internet Money. 'Tragic' is a track lifted from The Kid Laroi's newly enhanced album and one that wasn't originally included on the July release.
The conversational interplay of the song is set to a sparse soundtrack of looping snares and high piano keys as the vocals spar it out. The beat is off-set and drops in and out of the mix, carefully arranged so as not to interrupt or distract from each of the vocal deliveries.
'Tragic' is Laroi's autobiographical account of how he has made something of himself, how he has dragged himself "out the mud", how he has gone from rags to riches and seen many of his friends die along the way, "I've seen too many of my friends turn into ashes".
He's not so much angry as hurting. He's had it hard and turned it around but it's not been easy and he wants you to know that. As Hip-Hop tales go it's hardly an unfamiliar one but The Kid Laroi does deliver it with conviction and sincerity.
The redistribution of wealth continues as a thread used in the video as stolen Christmas presents are pawned or given to the less well off, raising money for an anguished mother and bringing happiness to a brother. (Hopefully the insurance can cover the burgled party!)
