KG is the politically charged Australian rapper making a shout out towards social injustices and shattering racial stereotypes through raw and powerful lyrics.
With two accomplished singles All Black and Forgive Them having accumulated radio play from triple j and receiving high rotation on Unearthed, KG has just unleashed another red-hot track, booming with energy and hitting you straight in the chest with honest, powerful lyrics.
Mabo, Martin, Mandela is the compelling new offering that takes a focus on KG’s three favourite leaders in history.
Tackling racism and discrimination, KG is both an artist and an advocate for peace, reflecting on the past yet always moving forwards by championing global equality.
Hoping to enlighten people about who they are whilst encouraging them to be proud of where they’ve come from, he ultimately hopes the song triggers a reaction from of people from all races.
The track is a landscape of sonic textures, sharp beats and KG’s fierce vocals, executed with so much passion you can almost feel the energy radiating off them.
With lyrics like, “Cultures burned down, ashes left on the ground and some how we rise up holding the crown,” and “No matter if you’re white or black we all share the same fate,” Mabo, Martin, Mandela reiterates the issues present within society, spreading awareness and acting as a wake up call.
KG is no certainly no rookie when it come to shows, having previously supported big-name acts such as Lupe Fiasco, Bone Thugs N Harmony and Ice Cube. It’s refreshing and admirable to hear issues that have been swept under the rug brought to light, and we commend KG on his efforts towards promoting global peace.
