The visuals center on the two Boston rap icons, who got the opportunity to post up at a local museum to bring the words of “It Takes Progress” to life. As Insight explains, the track is about more than simply highlighting societal issues; it’s about inspiring the change necessary to make a difference. And what better way to demonstrate how that’s worked through time than to showcase the cultural artifacts of the past?
It’s the perfect backdrop for “It Takes Progress,” its lyrics, and its phenomenal production, which gave Insight an opportunity to provide a live, fleshed-out sound. And both he and Edo. G are as inspired as ever here with sincere and sharp rhymes. It’s no surprise, then, that each artist points to this track as one of their favorites off their self-titled collaborative debut, due out May 28.
