New Music: Doechii Tells Us Why She’s ‘Crazy’

Published

Youtube/'Crazy'

Two days ago, Top Dawg Entertainment’s first woman in Hip-Hop, Doechii recently released her new single ‘Crazy.’

On Instagram, the Swamp Princess explains that her single is about “un-contained power, creativity and confidence.”

“Then I ball like Spaldin’
Can’t call my bluff when the shit is my calling
Won’t duck bitch, I’m all in
It’s a brand new day, new pace, light joggin’
Straight facts, no jargon
It’s a whole lot of big blue checks, no login
Low stress, no stallin’
See a whole lot of big buguettes when I fall in”

Off rip, the lyrics already execute craziness but the music video is CAMP-crazy. There’s nudity, guns, cars on fire, and more chaos. Doechii is also pictured ashing a cigarette on her bare arm. It’s provocative and it’s definitely gotten the people going — specifically Youtube.

Unfortunately, Doechii’s music video was banned from trending on Youtube not necessarily for nudity but for the violence, which is quite questionable considering the types of violence that a plethora of artists have captured in their music videos (see Childish Gambino’s ‘This is America,’ Cardi’sPress,’ etc).

Doechii posted a note issued by her director touching on the matter.

Swamp Princess 🐊 on Twitter: “Because Crazy is banned from trending on YouTube I just ask that you guys share it and support it as much as possible if it resonates with you 🤎 Directors Note for anyone curious: pic.twitter.com/ngMvsBNvZ0 / Twitter”

In summary, they explain that the video was filled with metaphors that pertain specifically to the type of experience that many women endure as they ascend to power.

One of the most flooring scenes in the music video is when the rapper shoots a woman in the beginning. In the very end, Doechii takes her own life. These events illustrate the tethering experiences between women.

“…when you die, I die, and therefore we must stand together.”

As a result of the problematic Youtube ban, Doechi is ineligible to collect any royalties from the platform. Let’s continue to support Doechii by streaming ‘Crazy’ and her other projects on other streaming platforms!

“People work on their albums for a year; albums are just different. So City Cinderella is not my first album, being that I made this project so damn fast,” the Miami rapper told PAPER. “I had to create this project throughout the tour and moving around, so I didn’t have time to really nurture and doctor it.
