South African born, Australian raised rapper KG is making no apologies with his politically charged anthem ‘Mabo, Martin, Mandela’.
Following on from his resolute singles ‘All Black’ and ‘Forgive Them’ which Triple J’s Hip Hop king Hau Latukefu donned as “Hometown lads going at it and bringing the real” the social justice advocate is sure to set tongues wagging with his no holds barred approach to tackling the taboo topics of racism and apartheid, “Mabo Martin, Mandela is my tribute to three of my favourite black leaders in history. I created the song to educate people on who they are and get an emotion of pride from the black community as well as a reaction from people of all races. In the current climate and fight for equality worldwide, it’s important that we learn from the past”. KG
Wittily sampling news anchor segments and enlisting the lyrical prowess of NIMA ‘New Talent Of The Year’ and Bad Apples artist Philly to put his stamp on the record with his upfront verse “See them young coons, young buffoons, the one they warned you about, still claiming ignorance, nah it’s time to call them out” ‘Mabo, Martin, Mandela’ is a call to action on the current racial climate.
