Madchild "Painful Skies" (video)

Madchild "Painful Skies" (video)
Madchild is opening up his diary and coming clean about his past in his new confessional video for "Painful Skies."

This song from this year's Silver Tongue Devil is a sombre, deeply personal cut that touches on the Swollen Members rapper's troubled life, drug addiction and lost friendships. With a wistful, piano-flicked beat serving as the backdrop, we see footage of Madchild looking sombre as he raps for the camera and keeps warm with a Tim Hortons cup. This is intercut with candid tour footage and shots of Madchild hanging out with fans and journalists.

The clip was directed by Dustin "SHOT" La Rose. Watch it at the bottom of the page.
