Last month, Sage Elsesser released his first full-fledged LP, titled Àdá Irin, under his rap pseudonym Navy Blue. With a background in professional skateboarding, Sage quietly began entering the hip-hop world with collaborations ranging from MIKE to Earl Sweatshirt, before taking the stage with his rapping and producing talents. The New York-based rapper has now dropped visuals for “Simultaneously Bleeding,” a powerful spoken word track off of Àdá Irin that focuses on family, coping with loss and growth.

Over minimal instrumentals, Navy details his experience growing up. “Trickle down effect, my mother made a soldier/ Shoulders ain’t for crying on, my brother know/ Hold him close, privately we cope..” he raps. “Bouncing off the storm, watch it go up in smoke/ And those whom I adorn can’t contemplate no more.” Directed by Ryosuke Tanzawa, black and white visuals of Navy speaking in the rain are interspersed with clips of a mannequin engulfed in flames and then covered in ice. “My spirit can’t be touched” he repeatedly says.

Elsewhere in music, Xanman dropped a music video for “Different,” the second track off his upcoming project I’m A Bad Person.
