Santoy previously released his single “Dismissal”, which will accompany “5am Conduct” on his album. Without Hesitation is set for release on February 9.
“‘5am Conduct’ represents staying true to yourself,” Santoy explained in a press release. “Every genius gets called ‘crazy’ by people that only notice their uniqueness until they prove themselves. Oftentimes we ‘crazies’ find ourselves in moments of isolation and we rely heavily on our foundation to remain grounded.”
Santoy released his first record at age 15, which caught the attention of Rapper Big Pooh. Throughout his music career, Santoy has been recognized by publications such as The FADER and Complex.
The “5am Conduct” music video was directed by Midnight Collective, who has worked with artists including Polo G, Lil Yachty, Lil Tjay and 24kGoldn. Santoy explained that the concept for the music video is “a visual representation of those moments of isolation along the journey. We all have encountered various distractions along the way and understand that how you perceive them determines how well you are able to adapt.”
