UPGRADE HIPHOP PREMIERES “I DON’T FIT IN” MUSIC VIDEO WITH SUBSTREAM MUSIC
Substream Magazine has just premiered the official video for Upgrade HipHop’s track, “I Don’t Fit In.” Featuring a melodic chorus (courtesy of Heather Williams) the track is among Upgrade’s most personal lyrically. “I Don’t Fit In” specifically addresses the artists experience living with an anxiety disorder that always separated him as an outsider.
As Upgrade says “being in and out of doctor’s offices almost reinforced this feeling since I felt like there was a bunch of people trying to analyze the way I am or find a way to correct this ‘chemical imbalance’ going on in my brain.

The track is taken from his newly released album Chemical Imbalance: Another Dose (Equal Vision Records). The album was written during an especially dark period when the artist’s disorder got so bad that he was homebound for months, only able to document and record his inner struggle. Completing the album independently, Upgrade found an especially kindred spirit/ musical supporter in the form of Josh Eppard (Weerd Science, Coheed & Cambria). Eppard who contributes a guest verse to the track, “Further Down The Rabbit Hole” says that the artist’s verse on the track is “one of the most honest moments in music I’ve ever heard.”
