Isaiah Rashad and Lil Uzi Vert just released the music video for their latest collaboration from Rashad’s album, The House Is Burning. This is his first release in five years. The single “From The Garden” featuring Lil Uzi. Since it is his first album since 2016’s, The Sun’s Tirade, many consider The House Is Burning is a comeback for the rapper.
The colorful video shows Isaiah Rashad and Lil Uzi as they stroll through a bustling town late at night. Multiple Isaiahs can be seen walking down the street as people stand in nightclub lines. Police cars patrol the area. Lil Uzi Vert later enters the fray on a four-wheeler for his verse. However it is the music that will make this one a hit.
The song opens with which opens with an old school sample of horns before launching into a pumping, thrusting beat. Rashad’s flow in “From The Garden’s” is perfectly metered and his provocative rhyme and cadence just behind the beat are just sick! “Came out bussin’, came out puffin’, came out f*ckin’ on your cousin/ I do all these floozies worser than they daddy, but you love her,” Rashad raps in his verse. He deconstructed the song’s origins during a recent interview with Nadeska Alexis for Apple Music.
“From the Garden is the first song I made off the whole album. It had a totally different beat at first and we switched it up ’cause we had what they call demo-itus, so you kinda wanna hear something different.”
Working with Lil Uzi Vert
When asked if he imagined Lil Uzi Vert on the track from the start, he said, “No, not at all. But when we switched the beat I was like, ‘We need something else. This sound’s kinda out of my element”.”
Isaiah Rashad’s debut album, The House Is Burning, entered the Billboard 200 at #7, with nearly 41,000 total album/equivalent units sold. SZA, 6LACK, Smino, and Kenny Beats were among the album’s many high-profile contributors.
