“Save Me” is one of the most heart-wrenching tracks on Chasey the Illest’s breakout
mixtape, Nightmare Park. Each song is a piece of Nightmare Park, a world that Chasey
created to tell the story of the struggles, triumphs, and complexities of growing up in Detroit.
The visual for “Save Me,” shot and directed by SuperOfficialNate, brings the tragic nature of
the song’s subject to life, becoming an extension of the track itself while also adding to the
magical-realistic elements of the project as a whole.
Nightmare Park, though technically a mixtape, has the breadth and complexity of an
impressive debut album. The project’s title comes from a fictional world that Chasey created
for the purpose of hosting his deeper message:
“Nightmare Park is about me showing you how to get out of your nightmare,
showing you don’t have to stay in the darkness forever. It can feel like that, but you can
definitely get out of it, but it’s going to take some effort. I had to learn that the hard way.”
