New Music Video: Pain Killer – Torii Wolf

Premiered on Billboard, TORII WOLF‘s video for, latest single ‘Pain Killer’ documents the past struggles she has endured.

Produced by OVO’s Mike Zombie (of Drake’s ‘Started From The Bottom’ & DJ Khaled’s ‘They Don’t Love You No More’ featuring Jay-Z, French Montana, Meek Mill & Rick Ross fame), ‘Pain Killer’ is the audio equivalent of an opioid, replete with Torii’s pleas to euthanize her anguish, yet so ultimately stimulating it creates a high you can’t stop craving.

Speaking of her  latest single, Torii explains: “If anyone has ever had any substance abuse problems, or has used in the past at all, you feel this feeling of needing something. This dependency on getting high and these drugs, so to speak, are what we need so badly; end up turning on us,” Torii commented to Billboard. “They don’t care about us is what it feels like, you use them too much, it ends up biting you and hurting you either way. You need to get high and the only thing that can get you high is that drug and sometimes you’re high and it still doesn’t feel good anymore. And the same thing with a person–some relationships feel that way.

‘Pain Killer’ is from her solo debut EP ‘Flow Riiot’, released via DJ Premier’s TTT (To The Top) imprint. The 15 track collection is now out on all digital platforms.

But for now, it’s time to check out the video…

Music Video: Figo – Tayfun

A myriad of strong influences taken from his Turkish background and unsettled upbringing make for the hard-hitting debut single ‘Figo’, from 20 year old, Tottenham based, TAYFUN.

The track, produced by SLVNG MAJOR and Patrick Osei (mastered by Chris Athens (Drake – Views), proves to be a real juxtaposition of cultures as TAYFUN details what life was like growing up in Tottenham over an echoing middle-eastern chorus that is accentuated by the genuine Turkish sounds of the saz guitar, played by the man himself. The rapper lays bare a previously troubled soul as his honest lyricism tells a captivating story. ‘Figo’ is paired with an equally compelling video and the cinematic visuals for his debut track comes courtesy of director Teeeezy C of Frankincense and Myrrh.

Growing up in a family that was well known for crime, TAYFUN slipped into a number of situations that made him question which path to choose. Biding his time, he made the decision to travel Europe where Tayfun found salvation in music and subsequently acknowledged it as his true destiny. As well as the pride in his Turkish heritage, TAYFUN is inspired to share his story and struggle with other young people, particularly the Turkish youth he feels will relate to him, and inspire them to fulfil their own destinies.

With an impressive debut and cultural influences that set him apart from other rappers in the emerging scene, 2017 is set to be a destination for this young emcee.
