The visual for “Mixed Messages” was inspired by classic psychological horror genres, in particular Vertigo and The Shining. It's about experiencing that emotional limbo when you’re on the receiving end of unclear messages or mind games. Here Cakes is caught in a moment in time on replay, that space between excitement and frustration. It's a relatable, but perhaps too frequent phenomenon that we've all experienced at one time or another from people that catch our interest. In the end they become your ghost.
Rashard Bradshaw (aka Cakes Da Killa) is a rapper based out of New Jersey who just recently released an EP called #IMF, in which he blends the eclectic beats of various producers with his unique and erratic flow. The artist has now released a hypnotizing video for one of the tracks, “Mixed Messages”, that blends a monochromatic, dreary palette with glitchy portrait shots of both the rapper and an anonymous walker.
“Mixed Messages” comes off of the rapper’s latest EP, #IMF, which was released on February 10. -- unrecorded.mu
