Eearz embarks on an introspective return to his upbringing in the powerful new "If You Knew Better" video.
Eearz is still dropping videos for tracks from his debut project, Eearz to da Streets Vol. 1, released in October 2015. The songs are still sounding fresh, though -- a sign that the world is still catching up to his unique artistry. And he pours inspiration into his videos. The new "If You Knew Better" visual is a powerful and challenging piece of self-reflection from the underrated Ear Drummers artist.
In between footage of Eearz returning home and embracing his family members, he lies on a heap of old family photos, singing about the years he took his life for granted while in the trap. The hook -- "if you knew better, you would do better" -- is strangely haunting. Eearz admits to himself that he does, in fact, know better -- and he challenges the viewer to do the same.
Eearz followed up his debut with Eearz to da Streets Vol. 2 in October. Both volumes can be streamed here.
