In case there was any question about it, thugs can be as emo as any hipster, or whoever else is supposed to be stereotypically consumed by sad emotions. All the gangbanging, guns, and lean in the world does not make a trapper like Av Young Blaze immune from his dark thoughts of regret and fleeting images of a past love affair gone wrong.
Co-directors Jon Jon Augustavo and Adam Leeman help Av embrace his inner emotions in “Feeding My Flame.” Trekking through the lonely terrain at sunset, Av looks like he stepped out of grunge-era Seattle as he puts his gruff spin on the chorus of Nirvana’s “Come As You Are.” Sadly, he meets a similar, forlorn fate to Kurt Cobain, depending on if you believe in those conspiracy theories or not. As for those permanently affixed gold fangs? That must have been one flame.
