Dallas indie rapper Michael Fang releases controversial new single about money
Official music video for Fang's 'Rack Runner' will be released on YouTube on Halloween
By: Michael Fang
"Rack Runner" comes on the one-year anniversary of the release of Fang's EP "You're a sick nasty person." The Texas rapper dropped his newest song as part of his holiday tradition of releasing new music during the "spooky" month of October.
Rack Runner is a lyrically layered song laying out the desperate measures people take to avoid running out of money. In his latest release, Fang talks about doing whatever it takes to never be considered "broke."
The song's title is a nod to the colloquial phrase "run me your wallet" often said by robbers as they verbally demand money from their victims.
Never one to shy away from controversy, Fang suggests in Rack Runner that when money gets tight, sometimes it's necessary to go Robin Hood and rob the rich to get by. Fang offers social commentary through lyrics like: "The f*** am I making a tax, the cops like to shoot and I'm paying his ass?"
"I almost called it [the song] 'Gimme Your Money,' but I needed the title to be more aggressive,"
As the song progresses, the instrumentation takes an eerie and aggressive turn as Fang begins to rap faster and louder. By the end of song, he is practically describing a robbery in full effect.
One day after the successful release of Rack Runner on all major platforms, Fang will launch an accompanying music video on his YouTube channel on Halloween.
