Rittz Gets Real About Depression
Tech N9ne’s label Strange Music has a very solid roster and Atlanta native Rittz is absolutely no exception. From his forthcoming LP Top of the Line, slated for a May 6 release, Rittz drops the visuals for his single “My Window”.
Produced by Seven, the track features Rittz unapologetically discussing the often silent, slow killer depression. Visually the stage is set with Rittz rapping inside of a motel room taking sips of alcohol and popping pills while rapping, crying out for help and contemplating suicide.
Rittz gets in-depth mentioning that if he were to go through with it, his girlfriend will do the same, as she tries to every time he leaves.
The melodic chorus adds to the impact of the song, “They told me when it rains it pours, and I can hear the pouring rain, it feels just like a hurricane just came right outside my window.” The rest of the chorus is uplifting and implies if you stick it out, things will get better.
Rittz double time delivery is sharp, there is conviction in the words he’s spitting and it’s clear he is coming from a very real place. The lyrics, the beat and the video all mesh perfectly together. If this is any indication of what to expect from Top of the Line, Rittz has a dope album on his hands.
