For their third episode of ‘Secret Stage’, ISA TV partnered with Lil Crazed to touch on a topic that many have personally experienced, bullying. To spread awareness, Crazed performs an excerpt of his song, “Tick Tock”, which features Andrew Garcia (who is not in the video). The official song and video should be dropping in the near future, but this is a dope way to check it out for the first time.
Lil Crazed has never been one to shy away from collaborations. One of the more recent co-written drops is his contribution to Gaines’ “IDGAF”, of which you can view the music video for, below. If you don’t know what the acronym means, the song probably isn’t for you – otherwise it’s a fair listen from the mid-western MCs. The Crazed KiD closes out the song with the last verse.
“Direction” is another cut off Lil Crazed‘s Chapter 3 Liberation: The Lost Tracks, with DJ Sin. Crazed keeps things personal, talking about his formative late teen and early adulthood years. His kids even make an appearance in the video, rocking out with their Pops. I’m not too crazy about the hook but the song and the video are pretty solid overall.
When I was younger, I used to get myself into quite a bit of trouble. I’m the oldest son of three brothers and my parents figured I would be the first in the family to finish college. They never finished college themselves because they had me following their high school years so they were very excited about me going to college. They sent me to a private school and I was well-educated but because of the mistakes I made, I ended up not going to college. In this song, I tell you what happened during that time of my life. I regret absolutely nothing. If I didn’t go through what I did, I wouldn’t be the man I am today and have the beautiful kids I have now.
Lil Crazed jumped on a remix of Sonny Bonoho’s track called “We’ll Be Strong” (originally from his Jermaine EP). Additionally, he’s put together a short mini-video of just the hook and his verse to help promote the new version. Unfortunately, there’s no appearance by Sonny. You’ll find the lyrics after the jump. DL the song as a freebie, here.
Lil Crazed recently had a guest feature on a large collaborative Hip-Hop track by Poetic Killah called “Rap Ain’t Real.” The high energy song also features Young Buck (of ex-G-Unit fame), Kali, and D-illin. Crazed’s contributions were limited to the hook, but the silver lining to the role is that he has more song time than anyone else. This may not be the highest profile collab in the world, but it’s not a bad look for the Mid-Western MC either.
Here’s some new material from the head of the KiD camp, Lil Crazed. It’s the music video for “Lost a Fan” off the Liberation: The Lost Tracks release from last year. It’s one of his more subdued and somber songs, a tone that is reflected in the video. You can follow along with the lyrics, below, if you so desired.
In the imaginary wold of photogenic star couples, I imagine Lil Crazed & Erika David could rank near the top. The two play as each others love interests in the song “Just My Type”, from the KiD’s Chapter 3: Liberation – The Lost Tracks. It’s a simple, clean MV for an easy going Pop Rap song. Reminds me of my days in Middle & High School, oh so long ago, when I would hang out at the mall with my friends.
The ever present Youtube rapper from the mid-west, Lil Crazed, has a new video out. The track is “I Do This”, off the Chapter 3: Liberation mixtape that was released last year. Rather than going for your standard video with fancy production values, the KiD and his team opted to use a mix of candid home and studio footage. It’s an appropriate move considering who this song is for and about.
As most of you know, I keep a very tight circle of friends who I also call my team and I’m a father of 2 beautiful little boys. I do this for my family. I do this for my team. I do this for myself and whoever else is riding with me. Thank YOU for all of your support. I do this for us.
The first round-up for the last full week of April is a collection of cover music videos. The bread and butter of most Youtube artists are their cover videos, and sometimes they go the extra mile and put together a music video set to the tune/instrumental written by another. This particular batch of videos happen to be mostly of the R&B and Hip-Hop variety, but a couple of Pop records found their way into the mix too.

Crazed shared with his fans a new collaboration he participated in with an Aussie Hip-Hop group called My Team Dilemma. The duo features the head K.i.D. member on their “Make It Happen” single from their EP, On Our Way, that dropped just a couple days ago. You can hear a brief preview in the clip below, and if you find that it tickles your fancy, go ahead and pick up the song from iTunes for your collection.
