ABD (of Alphabetix) hitting the subject of #BlackLivesMatter right in the heart of Leeds!
Were you there?
Did you cameo on the video?
It’s a great track that sinks into the ears at the sound of the first note.
“In this song I argue that if you have been touched by Hiphop music and consider yourself part of the culture, then you have a duty to stand with the African American community. Racism and Police brutality are a very real problem both in the UK and the US. We cannot afford to leave it to a minority group to bring about change. We all need to get on board.” – ABD
Written by ABD. Produced by Double Deuce.
Filmed at the Black Lives Matter march in Leeds on 14th July 2016.
Rest In Peace, all of the many black people who have lost their lives at the hands of the Police.
