While the COVID-19 pandemic forced most musicians to a grinding halt, Regina rapper Pimpton is gearing up for the release of his new joint visual album "TUNNELZ" with Chicago based producer HearonTrackz El on October 30th. To celebrate the launch of the album and start the next chapter of his career, Pimpton has released his new video for "Exit The Vessel" online. “Exit the Vessel” is presented as a double-track that juxtaposes two seemingly different vibes and styles quite seamlessly. The first half of the production finds Pimpton in a very relaxed state of mind echoing the chorus stating that he's “Been down and deserves to get high”. While this is the obvious mood created by the instrumentation, the second beat takes Pimpton to a much more introspective realm, in which he tells a gripping story from an internalized perspective.
When asked, Pimpton states that, "This track was created as to be the intro of the album and holds all the clues and easter eggs necessary to decipher the code within” calling it a sort of codex to the project.
In the song and video Pimpton tackles some heavy subjects he holds close to home including a 2018 sexual assault charge laid against his former business manager, the 2019 unsolved murder of one of his closest childhood friends, police brutality in North America, as well as systemic racism and it's effects on Canada & the United States.
