Experts say when one loses their eyesight, all of their other senses become magnified beyond normal proportions and even argue that in some cases the individual becomes superhuman. In the case of North Philly’s Stoneface, abruptly becoming 100% blind from a gunshot transformed his entire being into a supernatural melting pot of his remaining senses.
On “37 Arsonist”, Stoneface blindly opens the doors of earth, wind and fire with a non-stop 37 bar inferno over a cinematic soundscape equal to his new enlightened vision. Director, Scientific Lens, skillfully captures Stoneface’s divine energy and metaphysical parables giving the viewer a window into a world of fire trapped in eternal darkness.
Stoneface shared with HipHopDX, “37 Arsonist is a 3 step journey beginning with war, followed by peace and lastly re-construction. These 3 steps represent how life and death come in 3’s, and how for me becoming blind didn’t kill me, I went through the fire to come out victorious.”
Stoneface’s debut album, The Stone Age, is available for purchase on CD and all digital platforms via Gemstarr Regime Records and features guest appearances by Freeway, Ras Kass, Lil’ Fame (M.O.P), Sadat X (Brand Nubian), William Cooper, Nature, Blacastan, 9th Prince (Killarmy) and Quiyiim Bayah.
