The Video:

Today, Seattle rapper Sadistik is releasing his first solo record since 2008, Flowers For My Father, via Fake Four, Inc. To celebrate the release of the album, Sadistik is also unveiling the video for the latest single from Flowers, "Russian Roulette," which features Cage and Yes Alexander.

The video, premiered this afternoon by VIBE, is a direct reflection of the subject matter in “Russian Roulette.” "Both Cage and myself have a lot of material dealing with bitter breakups and unstable women, so I wanted the video to reflect that," says Sadistik. "I wanted to show a vulnerability and fear towards women hurting a man.”

When writing the treatment, Sadistik wanted the video to show a dark take on a revenge story, a nod to some of the genres and films that have inspired him throughout his life. The video was also co-directed by  Terrence Santos, who also directed the “City In Amber” video, and the two again gelled well with a shared vision for the video “Terrence is well-aware of my appreciation and knowledge of film so it was easy to work together and achieve the style we wanted,” notes Sadistik, name-dropping directors like Stanley Kubrick and others as inspiration. " I wanted this to have a heavy Grindhouse/Exploitation film feel."

The Background:

Flowers For My Father marks Sadistik's first solo album since his 2008 debut, The Balancing Act, and charts his growth in spades. Evolving his style to a more synthesized rendition of a signature cinematic Seattle sound, the new album displays a distinct combination of Sadistik's complex, vulnerable writing with textured, ambient production handled by the likes of Blue Sky Black Death and Kno of CunninLynguists. Featured guest performances from indie hip hop heroes such as Cage, Deacon The Villain, Astronautalis, and more result in his most developed, mature, and revealing project to date. Shortly after the release of The Balancing Act, Sadistik's father tragically passed. Never one to shy away from heavy topics or keep his personal life personal, Sadistik wrote this album for his late father, choosing to treat each song as an update of what has happened in his life since. This is reflected in writing which delves into depression, romance, heartbreak, optimism and the struggle to make sense of the ever-shifting pieces in the world around him. Flowers For My Father is out now via Fake Four, Inc.
