HipHopDX Premiere: Hi-Tone is back with a new video for the Steelz-produced “Lifestyle,” which comes from his latest project, Price Of Admission. Much like he did on his last full-length album, 2016’s No Xanax Needed (NXN), the California rapper dives into his experience with substance abuse, specifically the effect drugs, alcohol and stress can have on an artist.
“”Lifestyle is the intro f Price Of Admission about the effects that this industry can have on you,” Hi-Tone explains to HipHopDX. “Rest in peace to all who we have have lost due to drugs, alcohol and suicide. I personally have battled with those issues. That’s what my last project NXN was all about. In this video, I’m about to jump f a bridge and then music saves my life, while paying homage to those we have lost.”
Price Of Admission was released on December 15, 2017 and can be found here.
