Kayo Genesis raps about the burdens of life created by growing up in confusion situations, with varying ideologies, in the release of his video for ‘Hometown’. Throughout the track, he highlights some of the aspects and influences in his life that has led him to become confused and unfocused, in turn causing him to be a self-reliant and driven individual, someone eager to create his own path and dictate the direction of his life. He longs for rest and peace, however, which he credits to being away from his hometown, Palmdale, California. The video has him seen through different parts of the Los Angeles city, cutting through scenes of him at skating at a skatepark, by a school, in a parking deck, performing at a show and kicking it with his friends eating pizza. The lyrical and descriptive performance was very solid, and the video perfectly portrayed the discord he felt while trying to maintain and figure out life, throughout the confusion and the peace that he could have been home.
