With SD's debut full length Truly Blessed on the way (purchase here via iTunes) the rising Chicago rapper delivers the visuals for his "Circles" single. Produced by Omen and AudioBLK, the video for "Circles" perfectly captures the whirlwind and subsequent sense of despair that is SD's world. The video finds SD rapidly flailing about in the Lord's house and riding around in a Bentley, contemplating his very existence. SD doesn't hold back on Truly Blessed, it's all meat and potatoes for the 20-year-old rapper, as he depicts the harsh realities of his upbringing in the Windy City. Going along with SD's signature raw melody and grimy raps is production from Sonny Digital, Cash Money AP and more. Watch the video for SD's "Circles" after the jump.
