I’ve got some more music from Pensacola
to feature tonight. The visuals above, are of rapper Max Castillo’s first music video. The song is titled Somewhere and was created as a tribute after the death of a friend of Max’s early last year. Somewhere is a heartfelt homage to the memory of a lost peer. Max Castillo was still in high school at the time of his friend’s death, and I can’t imagine how unbelievably hard that would be to go through at such a young age. Luckily, I have no yet had the misfortune of having to cope with the loss of a friend. I do need to point out the nice use of sampling that Hawaiian version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow. The video itself is pretty straightforward and simple, showcasing a few locations around Pensacola, and directed by Kid Kodak
and crew’s Jetlag Entertainment. Somewhere can be found on Max’s mixtape, Elevation
, that released last December. Max Castillo is also prepping the release of his latest mixtape titled The Main Event, scheduled for sometime next month. The Main Event will be a concept work, playing out like a boxing match, where each song is a metaphor for one of life’s many trials.
