“Sad Right Now”, an infectious new song by West Coast hip-hop artist Cedric Des, explores the meaning of happiness, friendship, loneliness, and his attempt to reconcile them in his life. Produced by his friend, Kenaniah, ‘Sad Right Now’ features a distinct set of melancholy synths, punchy 808’s, and unique sounds that takes listeners on a roller coaster of moods. With lines like “Heart on the table for your exhibition. No fee to enter or taking pictures”, Des displays a vulnerability and rawness that’s missing in today’s self-bolstering hip-hop culture.
