Not long after inviting us into his world with “Back In The Days” and its personal music video, and Franklyn Music is back with another impressive record and accompanying set of visuals. Serving as the first official leak from his forthcoming project, Just Being Frank 2 (the follow-up to his 2010 original), the burgeoning London-bred lyricist delivers a powerful – and true – anecdote with “Sad Story”.
Only making a brief appearance in the video, the focus is shifted to the 16-year-old girl in his lyrics, who transitions from being educated and ambitious to promiscuous, later struggling with finding herself pregnant and then committing suicide. Unlike the general pool of UK Rap artists, Franklyn demonstrates incredible maturity and necessary commentary.
Just Being Frank 2 is due out July 30th.
