Kari Faux delivered an official music video for “Leave Me Alone” last month and now she returns with her new Cry 4 Help EP.
The project features five songs in total and comes with a lone guest appearance by Jet Life rapper Currensy.
“I felt like I was kind of spiraling,” Faux told NPR. “These past traumas were just coming up that, I guess, I hadn’t realized I hadn’t dealt with. I’ve always felt like I was never able to put my real, real life into my music, so this was kind of like a test for me to see like, ‘Okay, can you write about the shit [that] has actually happened to you?’ … Once you go down that rabbit hole of analyzing yourself, it’s kind of hard to put yourself back together and still feel like you’re deserving of love and respect,” she says. “But you can’t depend on anybody else to make sure that you’re okay. It’s really nobody else’s job.”
“I really can’t believe this is actually out in the world now. The soundtrack to my unstable ass life,” the talented songstress added on Instagram. “I ain’t got my shit together and I don’t want to pretend like I do. this entire process has freed me in a way and taught me so much about myself and others.”
