Today’s post comes from Perez a multi-talented artist who has blessed our page before and as promised has returned with his latest single “Cloak[s]”. This poetic street narrative explains life’s trials and tribulations while capturing the raw emotion of today’s youth growing up in poverty stricken environments. Perez paints a honest and transparent outlook of his environment while touching on hard topics and discussing the consequences of such conditions. Offering an elevated perspective to his surroundings by analyzing the actions of his peers as cause and effect, looking past the surface and digging to the core and essence of this generational cycle. Giving a bird’s eye view of the negative influences surrounding and suffocating neighborhoods, creating poison within the communities. Stating that often times the one’s we look to for guidance are the same one’s keeping us down.
“Teacher’s said we ain’t gone be shit/ we done F*ucked round and believed it”
Perez explains psychological and educational problems in society while tackling real life situations with families’ and friends, using his words as a mirror of reflection for listeners. Make sure you stream “cloak[s]” below and catch him in Cincinnati October 21st as he shares the stage with Nas at Ubahn Fest….
