Chicago-based singer/rapper dying in designer has released a new video for his single Pull It. 2018 was the hardest year of dying in designer’s Bobby O’Brien life. Fully-consumed by a toxic relationship that ultimately led to immense pain, heartbreak, depression and suicidal thoughts, he used every ounce of pain and sorrow to create music that pulled him back into the world.

Plus my relationship was getting worse and worse which just added on more stress. After strictly living off music for 3 years, I had to get a “real job” just to pay for bills and studio time. I would wake up super early, go to work for shit pay, come home, drink a 12 pack, write, record, and sleep for a few hours, then repeat.” He adds: “I was so fucking depressed; it got really hard to wake up each morning, especially with having to follow orders at a day job I wasn’t passionate about. I had some pretty dark thoughts and as cliché as this may sound, music was the only thing that kept me going, and without
