Wangechi Unleashes “Cardiac Arrest”

Wangechi just released the visuals to her latest single “Cardiac Arrest.” She recounts the story and recovery process of her recent road accident in this emotional song. Her experience has no doubt affected her art, as any major life threatening event would, and it shows. She has a lot to say and she sounds confident doing it.

The video, directed by Moses Osidiana from Brain Works, is highly symbolic. There’s a scene of a car wreck, a highlighted wheelchair and a spinning broken clock. The dancing by FBI dance crew is haunting and ethereal. Wangechi looks beautiful as she shows off her scars not just physically but also lyrically:

…and though I’m broke I’m not a wreck, I know I gotta find a way to awake from despair

Amazing song. Amazing visuals.Wangechi has been unleashed and we are ready.
