The hip-hop artist and mental health advocate, Chris Wade, has been making major waves with his poignant lyrics that make emotional engagement mandatory in his tracks that groove with modern gospel vibes. Based on his standout single, Save Me, he’s still criminally underrated.
There is no overstating his ability to turn wordplay into cutting dissections of our society’s sickest facets. I’ve heard my fair share of raw rap tracks in reaction to the varying atrocities since the start of the pandemic but Chris Wade’s humility and tendency to paint with light and dark introspection made Save Me an experience that I will never forget.
You can check out the official video for Save Me on YouTube.
