The Video:

Last month, Seattle rapper Sadistik released his critically acclaimed new album, Flowers For My Father, via Fake Four Inc. Today, he is releasing the video for the lastest single from Flowers, "Kill The King." The video is directed by Deacon The Villain and co-directed by Kno, who together make up two-thirds of the underground group CunninLynguists, and who are also featured on the song. The video is the third off the album, following "City In Amber" and "Russian Roulette."

The song, "Kill The King", much like the album Flowers For My Father, is a departure both musically and personally for Sadistik. "It basically means to kill your ego,” Sadistik explains, “in order to gain objectivity and express yourself with honesty.” The video is a direct manifestation of that outlook, depicting a girl amidst the trials and tribulations of her own drug addiction as well the resulting struggle to see who she’s truly become.

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.
