“Silence Is Golden” (preview)
Chicago emcee Esohel is back on the site with a brand new video. It’s for his song “Silence Is Golden,” which features fellow artist Add-2. The single itself was produced by Ricky Dubs. It is a piano laced number with a refined bass, a mid-tempo gait, and a practical vibe. The hook is on point and the rhymes are first-rate. The fellas wanted to bring awareness to some of the present day social and political issues we are facing and they did just that. Overall, this is a choice record. It should be noted that the track appears on Esohel’s current album On Purpose With A Purpose. See what he cooked up for the visual after the break.
The video was put together by Sense Hernandez of Beast Factory Films. The flick features Esohel and Add-2 doing there thing amongst a range of simple yet impression making backdrops. Those backdrops include everything from city buildings to black settings with chairs draped in the United States flag. The flag is a reoccurring symbol in the piece. Additionally, there are random clips that pertain to the song throughout the video as well. Some of those clips include shots of: political figures, riots, money, etc. The project closes out with a black & white shot of Esohel & Add-2, then shifts to end credits and promo for the LP. All in all, this was a studious video.
**My Two Cents: This was another track by Esohel that I found enjoyable. The production was good and the purpose behind the song was honorable. The video gets two thumbs up as well. I liked the use of the flag and everything moved along fluently. If readers enjoyed the song & video, they can get more from Esohel by visiting his website. -MinM
