2020 has undoubtedly been a year of turbulence and uncertainty. With so much unpredictability, many have wondered if its best to have faith or give up completely. DJ Five Venoms has a simple remedy for the global pain: Fight through it.
Written directly after the killing of George Floyd, “Too Toxic”, depicts Venoms’ state of mind as the weight of the current pandemic, mass unemployment, and societal civil unrest as a whole has affected both his sanity and inner peace. With appearances from featured artists, Pressure Dommer and Prettyboy Kelsey, the emotional fight song’s accompanying music video also chronicles how weary we all have grown of our world’s current state. With melodic urgency, he picks each listener’s brain with the question: How do we prepare for this to happen again? Something that we all inquire; yet remain fearful of its answer.
Notably known for his involvement with hip hop’s Rolling Loud Festival, DJ Five Venoms also serves as the host of Sirius XM’s Rolling Loud Radio, and has built a good reputation for himself throughout the entire hip hop industry. Released under his label $ic World Music, “Too Toxic”, continues to serve as those words of encouragement that are strongly needed during these trying times.
