Today, Arrested Development presents visuals for their most recent single "Becoming".
The song and video is dedicated to Anthony - a prisoner featured in his “16 Bars” documentary (filmed in a Richmond, Virginia penitentiary), whose back story Speech utilises lyrically.
"Becoming" is the most recent single off of Arrested Development's new album "Don't Fight Your Demons", which was released September 25th.
The 16-track album features a selection of eclectic musicians including Kuf Knotz, Skyy High, Christine Elise, O’hene Savant, Rambo, Let The Dirt Say Amen, Fro Magnum Man, MRK SX, and is executively produced by Speech for Vagabond Productions and Configa for Configa Records.
The group assures fans and listeners this is no hit or miss album. Each track is distinct in style, flow, and vibe, with influential wordplay and infectious soundscapes. They break down and take apart worldly injustices, the current state of racism, grueling masks of politics, and on the flip side offer empowering gems on how to overcome and rise through.
The production throughout the entire album channels a continuous kaleidoscope of invigorating bass, soul, funk, worldly tones, and even innovative cadences ear-pleasing to a younger generation of music connoisseurs.
‘Don’t Fight Your Demons’ ideally serves as a “how-to” handbook brimming with incomparable lyricism, storytelling, and cognizant awareness delivered in a fashion only Arrested Development can carry through.
