"Shoot Em Down" is set up like a classic wild west movie. Mod Sun plays the protagonist, who is torn from his lover (girlfriend Hannah Beth) by a pack of bandits (led by Machine Gun Kelly). Mod Sun then meets this guy in a Native American headdress, some trippy hippy stuff happens, and Mod Sun ends up being shot by Machine Gun Kelly.
The rapping is smooth and on beat. My personal favorite line is "only two things I will not do/Watch my back and watch my language". It's the perfect hippy anthem, with lines like "Living like a rasta/hair like pasta" and "Inspiration, medication/That's all I need in my life's equation". Listen, think, and smoke like Mod Sun and you will instantly start feeling better.
"Shoot Em Down" is off Mod Sun's debut album Look Up, which is available to purchase or stream. The album also includes Mod Sun reading his book, Did I Every Wake Up? which is also available for individual purchase. Mod Sun is currently working on his second album, and has revealed that the sequal to his book of poems Happy To Be Here, will be coming later this month.
