“AMERICA” – IAN KAMAU X BIG SPROXX

IAN KAMAU X BIG SPROXX

Timely and potent. “Red lines on a white T, not unlike the nations flag”.

Ian Kamau is (and has been for some time now) an artist of towering voice, vision and thoughtful intelligence. “America” resonates with the soulful anger of sadness. “the anger of a thousand years holds me and never lets me go”.

This is journalism. This is how it feels, for those not consumed by the seething rage of riot, but by the dreadful sense of familiarity of another dead black boy shot full of holes, whose institutionalized killer will not see justice in a land that champions itself as a pillar of the rule of law. This is an anger that will not dissipate when the riots do. This anger haunts us.This anger has been jailed, beaten, shot at… it will not go away.

The Big Sproxx produced “America” moves with a jazzy melancholy, Gil Scott Heron meets M.F. Doom style. A soundtrack for the contemplative moments in  (life)times of unrest.

Big Sproxx is going to make protest politics sexy again in Hip Hop music. It seems a certainty. The driving force behind the Freedom Writers, continues to build a catalogue making revolutionary intelligence sound good.

“America” is the first fruit from the IAN KAMAU X BIG SPROXX project… we look forward to more.
