Jae Ari puts personal exploration on full display in the visuals for his record “Talking To Myself”. Over a relatively calm Hank Iving-produced instrumental, Jae Ari delivers chilled introspective raps to listeners in a way that aims to momentarily put them into a position where they can understand the happenings of his mind in relation to his music.
The consideration of different sides of the “self” in this video proves to be quite interesting. While Jae searches for himself in the verses, we’re shown dialogue between the real him and two of the driving forces directing his day-to-day approach: his self-doubt and his ego.
We all have that self-doubt – that voice that tells us that we can’t achieve something or discourages us from following our dreams.
This is what makes “Talking To Myself” quite relatable. We all have that self-doubt – that voice that tells us that we can’t achieve something or discourages us from following our dreams.
On the other hand, we all have the ego that at times gives us an arrogant, over-confident attitude towards whatever we associate with in life.
Like the rest of us, Jae is tasked with the challenge of figuring out how to balance the two. With “Talking To Myself”, he acknowledges the mental clash and copes with it in a remarkably creative manner.
