American rapper Dax has a simple message eloquently told in the video for his new track Black Lives Matter.
By Graeme Smith
Black Lives Matter feels like an outpouring of frustration something akin to The Black Eyed Peas Where Is The Love? Yet, it is also a call to action, a practical guide to what everyone should be doing during this flash-point for the civil rights movement globally. Dax performs from the heart but writes with his mind and it’s a powerful combination.
Between the verses the simple refrain “I can’t breathe” floats in and out, accompanied by the broken down piano riff that underpins the track. It’s a simple but effective composition. It’s impossible to not feel roused after listening to Black Lives Matter. Check out the video below.
