Video: Heaven X – Leaders

Heaven X, aka JC Das, is a rapper based in Los Angeles who pays homage to revolutionaries with his new track and video Leaders.

By Graeme Smith

Leaders has something of an old school feel about. JC’s delivery style is very boom bap. Yet, there’s also something fresh and contemporary about it too, with a textured, moody instrumentals that speak to modern emotional hip hop. What stands out most though, is the wordplay and message of the track’s message, name checking some of the strongest leaders in recent history.

JC came to rapping in a fascinating way. He previously provided respite therapy to children with autism, and was a monk in India for six years. He sounds like a really interesting person alongside the solid bars he’s putting out.
