After an intro of warmly saturated indie guitars, A Milli’s seminal alt-hip hop single, Crazy, grooves into a cuttingly resonant admission of fear over losing your grip on reality. It is ironic when you think about it, considering that being in touch with reality is the sole reason for the global mental health epidemic.
As Jack Kerouac famously said, “the only ones for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved”; that sentiment definitively stood for me while Crazy was running through.
The Ontario-born artist is one of the few left that recognises the true roots of all genres; preservation of our history. In Crazy, the independent artist and audio engineer held himself accountable by extending positive vibes only after melodically laying it all down on the line.
