According to reports, Isaiah Rashad is currently finishing up the finishing touches for his next studio album, The House is Burning, which — along with the rumored single release of “200/Warning” — has been dominated by the songs “Lay Wit Ya” and “Headshots (4r Da Locals),” in which Rashad takes stock of his current mental state as follows:
Mez Heirs and Jack Begert have provided a visual for “Headshots,” which follows the amped-up visual for “Lay Wit Ya.”
To emphasize Rashad’s pre-album troubles, the clip starts off with him bartending, before an unoccupied drink leads us to the image of a meeting – the video’s most obvious point of interest. Additionally, the video shows Rashad out in the desert, two men who appear to have gunshot wounds, and other trippy scenes that are connected by a variety of circles. At the end of the video, Rashad is picked up by his homies and taken for a ride, before he takes a swig from a bottle that appears to be tequila. Several plays are required to catch everything in this game.
The Sun’s Tirade marks Isaiah Rashad’s official debut release five years ago, including guest appearances from Jay Rock, Deacon Blues, SiR, Kendrick Lamar, Zacari, Syd, Kari Faux, Hugh Augustine and SZA. Chattanooga’s emcee has been off the radar for a while, with the exception of his single “Why Worry” and occasional appearances on YGTUT’s “Trill Dreams” and SZA’s “Pretty Little Birds,” and Tokimonsta’s “No Way,” In addition to his social media posts, Rashad entertained some of his fans.
