HipHopDX Premiere – Madchild hit a major milestone this year when his 2012 solo album Dope Sick was certified gold in Canada.
To mark the momentous occasion, the Swollen Members MC has returned with a new video for “Dickhead,” which comes from the aforementioned project.
“This is a major moment for me,” he tells HipHopDX. “I want to thank everyone for supporting me as a solo artist and this album. I think this shows that if you’re in a dark place, but you fight to get back on track or back on a positive path that eventually good things will start happening again.
“I think that when you put out positive energy good things will come back to you. As a thank-you to all the fans, we made a super funny animated video for the song ‘Dickhead.’ We should have done this video a long time ago because this song was always a hit with the fans. For one reason or another, the video never happened, but we thought it would be cool to do one now that Dope Sick has officially gone Gold as this happening was driven by the fans.”
Dope Sick debuted at No. 3 on the Canadian Billboard Top 200 and was then nominated for a Juno Award in the Recording of the Year category. The album also received Sirius XFM and Canadian Independent Music Award nominations.
Madchild is currently wrapping up his Head In The Clouds Canadian tour with Dizzy Wright.
