Chase Allen told HipHopDX his song “Lost Souls” is about those with “no guidance,” and those who are “mentally and spiritually homeless, lacking knowledge of self.” But he painted the picture using his own experiences, like consistent racism from police and getting involved in activities he shouldn’t have as a youth.
“With all that is in the media and warped into the educational systems, by the time most of us realize we are lost it’s too late because we are already programmed to believe a certain story,” he said.
Now today, we’re premiering the song’s video. “Lost Souls” will land on Allen’s Far From Home project, which will consist of Allen life since moving from Philadelphia to Los Angeles. He said the project was inspired by Malcolm X’s autobiography.
The video has Allen exploring his new home, from the depths of the subways to the peaks of the hills that swarm Los Angeles’ backdrop.
Watch the video below. Allen’s Far From Home will arrive December 16.
