HipHopDX Premiere: In celebration of his latest album, The Darkest Hour (released July 28 via Battle Axe Records), Madchild has dropped a video for one of the 14 new tracks on the new project. Titled “Black & White,” the song was produced by longtime friend and collaborator Evidence, and finds the Swollen Members MC bobbing and weaving his way through the ominous beat.

With lines like, “Relationships ain’t shit/ Like ‘bro I fucking love you’ is the fakest engagement/ I could no longer take it/ Like standing in the middle of a Satanic snake pit/ evil all around and hatred/ had to make some changes, now every day is sacred,” it’s clear the Vancouver native has done some soul searching. His journey evidently took him to India, where the video was shot.

As the title suggests, The Darkest Hour details the darkest time in Madchild’s life. He uses his aggressive lyrics to quell the demons he battles. Guests include Alchemist, Domo Genesis, Fashawn, Krondon, A$ton Matthews and Illmaculate.
