As South Central rapper Bale preps for the release of his aptly titled project Hard Times Shaped Me, it’s impossible not to look back at this young emcee’s inexplicable and superhuman recovery from a nearly fatal shooting. As such the young rapper will address the unfortunate shooting that riddled him with 28 shots from head to toe in his new documentary.

Prior to that Bale plans to release his video for “Check” taking fans through his LA neighborhood. Breaking down the harsh realities of getting shot and his struggle to recovery Bale explains how music and his passion to tell his story would be the reason he survived.

Now with the horrors of the past in the rear view, Bale takes fans on a trip to see what a day in the life looks like in South Central with his visual for “Check.” From the barber shop to the food spot to kicking back with his friends in the back of a pick up truck, Bale shows that he down to earth and humble, yet cool under the harshest of circumstances.

At his side and mentoring him along the way is West-Coast mainstay Krondon, who eagerly entered into a business partnership with the young South Central upstart who impressed him with his story and ability to create meaningful music.

The release of the project comes on the heels of Krondon’s premiere appearance and role as Tobias Whale in CW’s interpretation of the famed 1970’s DC Comic Black Lightning.
