Video: JMSN- Fallin
Posted by Anthony Obst
Rise & Fall
Spoiler alert: JMSN is not the second coming of Jesus. Even though after watching his new video for "Fallin'" you may take that to be the case. But the multi-talented singer/producer's star is clearly on the rise. After his self-produced Priscilla mixtape earlier this year, the Detroit native has quickly ascended the ranks in today's ever-expanding R&B scene, supplying beats for Ab-Soul, appearing on The Game's astonishingly solid comeback LP, and even lending vocals to 4 tracks on good kid, m.A.A.d city. The new video comes with an explanation from the man himself, which he posted to his Tumblr:
“All this Darkness won’t turn light, and all these wrongs wont make it right.” With so many things that are supposed to give you pleasure surrounding you, how could anyone be so lonely and unfulfilled. All these things around me that superficially would seem to bring me pleasure, (the food, the women, the sex, etc.), have just made the numbness worse and noticeable through my soul. These demons are fighting for me and even fighting each other over my soul. Of course these things look enticing, but my soul is not swayed. My soul will win with innocence. In the end all of these things will destroy themselves with the chaos they create. They will all fall away from me and fade out of my life. I will be left just how I started, Innocent. And when you make it through the storm, you have only yourself to judge. If you can accept and carry yourself through the midst of fire. You will be born again. Innocent.
