Producer Documentalz and Buffalo NY MC Rahim team up to produce the thought-provoking album, “The Red Pill”
Atlanta, GA – Documentalz x Rahim’s release “The Red Pill” chronicles the lifestyle many African-Americans live. Documentalz hard hitting musicscapes with Rahim’s piercing vocal tone demands your attention on this album. The album starts with a computerized voice explaining The Red Pill and setting the mood and temperature even before the music starts. The Red Pill takes you on a roller-coaster of vivid landscapes and unimaginable pain on this well thought out piece. Tracks like “Still Wish” grabs you with the psychedelic intensive beat with Rahim taking you on a journey of wishes that impacted his life.
Both Documentalz and Rahim hail from the gritty streets Buffalo, NY. The two have a long history together. In 2001 they released the album “As the World Burns” for Rahim’s debut. Rahim explains, “The injustices of the world have always sparked my lyrics, I began to take the craft more serious as hood life started to overwhelm me.” He also began to embrace his Islamic roots that most of his family had abandoned.
The Red Pill takes a hard look at the African-American experience and addressing many of the issues within it. The term “Red Pill” is based from the Matrix movie peeling back your current state to realize it’s not based in the “real” reality of your environment.
“The harrow of self-inflicted circumstances profoundly hits as Rahim runs through his bars which take the gloss off the ghetto lifestyle which far too many artists attempt to glamourize. With each syllable delivered, you’ll hear the vehemence towards the state of the socioeconomic climate and behavior that leaves people unable to rise up from underprivilege. “ – Amelia Vandergast (ANR Factory)
“The Red Pill” will be available February 2, 2022 on all streaming platforms and at documentalz.bandcamp.com for physical copies.
