I wanted each song to represent a different stage of Sonny’s life. On ‘Dismal,’ he’s battling with himself to regain his position at the top… It was enjoyable to create a song where i jump back and forth between the character’s voice and that of his conscience.
Who is Sonny, you ask? He’s the fictional protagonist for Black Milk’s forthcoming album No Poison No Paradise. Having failed at his dreams of becoming a successful rapper or athlete, Sonny struggles with depression and deciding what to do next with his life. No release date yet on the album.
