Established independent hip-hop artist Lucidious debuted at #17 on the iTunes Top 40 Hip-Hop Tracks this week with his single “Deja Vu” – released on April 8. Following the release of his powerful single “Grammy Weeknd” that stood up against industry gatekeepers, the new single is yet another compelling release from Lucidious that focuses on mental health. With clever rhymes and top quality production, “Deja Vu” explores the masks we all wear to cover the various mental states we may be in, and shows how that hidden identity can affect a person. His previous singles, like “On the Surface” and “Only Human” are continuing to be hits with diehard fans and outside audiences alike – garnering millions of streams.
