Unfoonk – Trial
Young Stoner Life Records recording artist Unfoonk releases visuals for “Trial”. Trial gives insight into the bonafide street-poets past and the emotions surrounding the trial for his life on a melodic beat. The lyrics capture his feelings of angst towards the law, his commitment to his biological and street family, and his battle with his own demons.
The video release today details the beginning and end of his life sentence in which he completed 11 years before being released with the aid of his brother, Young Thug. He is surrounded by his friends and the streets that brought him to be who he is today that also serve as a reminder of the path that he took. He warns of the death that plagues his hometown as someone’s coffin is carried by a group of his peers and expresses his desire to “get rid of these demons”. The journey continues as Unfoonk is surrounded by success, however, Unfoonk understands why he has to continue to tell his story. At the end of the video, he states: “I want people like y’all to feel what the f*ck I’m saying cause we the ones going through that so I wanna give them me.” “Trial” further speaks to his authenticity as a recording artists as he lets his fans get a personal look into his life so that they can relate to him and appreciate their own struggle by recognizing it in his words.
