FOCI delivers another movie off his album, The Achievement Gap. Pay attention to the words that are being spoken. Shouts to L.SCatterbrain & Percee P for being featured in the music video.
“While many emcees refer to the drug trade and their prowess in the underworld as a stepping stone to their own success in the music industry, few recognize the damage that substance abuse has on not just the user, but the families and friends of those close to them. In “Peace Up” Produced by Diverse (Young Buck, Bishop Lamont, Dilated Peoples) Directed by Eric Heights (ArtBattleLA, KCET, Niche.LA) and Mixed & Mastered by Omar Loya (Nas, Common, Lil Wayne) off of Foci’s debut The Achievement Gap, Foci gives us an alternative stance while narrating from a point of view where he too recognizes how he failed his friend. The song highlights how a once promising young man slowly morphed into substance abuse, which resulted in the consequences of a decline in health, choices, and spirits. No stranger to this, Foci tells a true story of the tragic situation that lead to his friend ultimately committing the act of murder. The final words in the song will be sure to give you chills down your spine. It is a tragic and very sad order of events that anyone and everyone can relate to, in the ever so entrancing and haunting hook, if you’ve ever lost one put your peace signs up in the air.”
