Massachusetts-based rapper Token comes through with the off-kilter visuals for his single “I Was In Hollywood”. The track is as visceral and unfiltered as they come with Token delving into his past and a plethora of events that made him who he is. From his father’s death to his own self-doubts and anxiety Token runs through various emotions and gives the listener a nuanced and somewhat tongue-in-cheek look at his life. He makes use of a moody and gloomy backdrop to paint his vivid imagery filled with dark humor, r-18 references to heartfelt revelations.
The visual is really engaging and follows Token through different scenes that are linked to his lyrics.
“I Was In Hollywood” follows Token’s breakthrough album, Pink Is Better, available everywhere now HERE. The star-studded collection – which includes features from JID, Rico Nasty, Lil Skies, Benny The Butcher, and more alongside production from Ronny J (Juice Wrld, Kanye West), Digital Nas (A$AP Ferg, Trippie Red) and Danny Majic (2 Chainz, Eminem) – is highlighted by such tracks as “High Heels (Ft.
