#ThinkCinematic on #AfroPunk's nod to #Brixton's finest: @TyMusical...
- '#MC, producer, and hip-hop #artist #TY has built a reputation off of his uniquely creative style, vacillating between singing and rapping while tackling sociopolitical topics other artists shy away from. Starting off in the London underground scene, TY’s bold approach to music has led to four #criticallyacclaimed albums, two EPs and a #MercuryPrize nomination.
His next album, #AWorkOfHeart, to be released later this year on the @jazzrefreshed label, promises to be an evolution of this already established legacy, if its lead single “#BrixtonBaby” is any representation. The #video, a visual ode to the communities within the South London district, tackles #gentrification as the artist tries to hold onto the essence of Brixton that inspired his generation of #Blackartists, while holding onto optimism for the future. “The vision for this video and song, was to establish some pride about where I come from,” explains TY. “To show the complexities of coming from a place which is changing and going through gentrification, embracing the change and resisting the change at the same time. Brixton is a very important black landmark in the UK and I wanted to document and celebrate all that live within it.” - ©#SoundCheck | @AfroPunk.com | August 2017
