Putting together this album has been a journey. Let it be known that we, Colours of the Culture, have been doing this shit since we were 14. All this time has passed, and yet, this is my first project to date.
This isn’t just an album. This is a story.
This is about a struggle, a search for meaning in a world diluted with hate & hollowness.
But through our art, our inner most self-expression, we can breathe life into our souls again.
Please take time to listen, enjoy, support & share this album with your friends, family & music fans. I assure you, you will not be disappointed.
I do this for the culture. I do this for hip-hop.
Since emigrating from the Middle East, my family & I have just managed to get our footing in this new soil of America.
We are immigrants. This album, is essentially an immigrant’s manifesto, a story about the trials of the minority class, the disenfranchised; people of all backgrounds who, for whatever reason, felt the biggest brunt of institutionalzied social injustice. But this is also a story about the struggle of my people, the Armenian nation, which struggled to escape colonial onslaught in the 20th century, a crime still largely unheard, which claimed the lives of 1.5 million Armenians. Apparently we haven’t reached the benchmark for being labeled a holocaust yet.
This album is for my home country, my refuge, my being…Syria. This is for Palestine, beautiful Palestine, still, resilient after all these years.
This is for resistance. This is for ferguson. This is for Trayvon Martin. This is for Hrant Dink. This is for Serena Shim. This is for Rachel Corrie. This is for Malcolm X. This is for Deah Barakat, Yusor Abu-Salha, & Razan Abu-Salha.
This is for FREEDOM.
May we all find peace & happiness.
I leave you with this:
Abandon your worries. Trust in the universe. Believe in your passions. March forth. March 3rd, actually. YALLA!
