Detroit bred, Vito Lays, just released his visual for “Trapped”.
A video that showcases the parallels of drug-dealers and drug-users growing up in the D’s trenches and their addictions. The video takes us from the darkest streets of Detroit to the pinnacle of some people’s idea of success – Rodeo Drive. The video visits the intricate lifestyle of the seller vs the heroin addict, even taken footage from LA all the way to Eminem’s old hood in Detroit.
The song was produced by Helluva, who’s the most sought out producer right now, making hits for rappers like Tee Grizzly.
Amazing artist Percymad took some time to draw an amazing portrait below. We got the chance to ask him some questions:
How long did it take you to draw this portrait?
– Maybe since January I was thinking to draw something different and original about him. Drawn some sketchs in my head before take the first pencil.
Drawing took 3 days but idea, many months.
What is your favorite Eminem song?
– My favorite Eminem song is Stan for sure! i listen it all the time since many years now, but Superman too, Cleaning’ out my closet, Mockingbird, … Recently The Ringer, hot track too ! Hard to choose.
If you could say one thing Eminem, what would it be?
“I wrote you but still ain’t calling .. »
No, maybe One, thanks! Because when I’m drawing with his songs in my ears at night, that gives me strength to work hard, to create, to be original …
He part of the people that inspire me, just think he is an inspiring person for many people.
I’m self-educated in the drawing, that’s my job for many years now.
