This new song and video “Happiness” from Massachusetts hip hop artist Token, is an incredible showcase of this young emcee’s talents. Token has already proved that he’s got bars for days and can spit with the best of them, and with this song right here, he is making it well-known that he is incredibly versatile in his artistry. It shows us he can tell a story, make an incredible song, and still bring the type of passion and bars that have made people come to know and love him.
In this song, Token tells vivid, human stories about the silent difficulties that so many people go through, but no one else sees. He uses a high school setting to describe the lives of the the nearly invisible, quiet kid in the back, the popular, beautiful blonde girl, and finally, his own place in that classroom. Lastly, “Happiness” shows that he is not only a rapper, but an artist who can bring thought-provoking concepts to life.
Stay on the lookout for Token’s upcoming project Eraser Shavings which is sure to be a beastly project.
