Blake Ragsdale recruits Animist and producer ClockworkDJ (Mac Miller) for his latest single “Joy.” The track is taken from his new album ‘What Has Yesterday Done To Tomorrow.’
The Alabama-based rapper shares an intensely personal track over soulful, ear gripping tones. Through intricate wordplay, Ragsdale describes how paper chasing has steered him shy of experiencing joy in his life. He finds himself playing his role and living cliche after cliche. It’s evident he’s going through the motions while drowning in his emotions.
Ragsdale’s identifiable truth is delivered in raw emotion with virtuous substance. Stream “Joy” above.
