the woke diatribe — A LOADED ANTI BULLYING HIPHOP PSA FROM AN ARMENIAN in ORLANDO


CA - Bully.jpg
I speak for a lot of fearful people who are fed up with being bullied.
I’m back on my High School freshmen “French Classroom” aesthetics.
Real shit, local artists didn’t live up to the hype & should remain in their lane so intended destinies flourish & lead.
 
Theres poison among wanna be intellectuals, and also a new poison with these empty new wave of “TRAP RAP” — some is GENUINE but most not – especially the white boys.
 
Enough of the sub par.
Why do so many local immigrant cats,
share the mentality of white supremacy?
The self hate is that real?
 
Orlando needs it’s King.
 
It has been fun flirting with pop for a while but now it’s back to that gritty Loyd Banks era shit — fuck what you heard!
 
All the bullshit is why we now have the “lil uzi whatever’s” and “6xxxxxxx9xxxxxxxxxxxx’s”…
 
I come from that that mafioso Afro-Western-Asiatic background.
 
It’s why I have so much respect for Jay Z : a role model.
 
Em, BIG.
 
On that note…
 
Fuck Kanye West and anyone who thinks like him.
 
I still love Kim K & the fam tho.
 
Believe IN YOUR SELF.
 
I’ve realized some very specific local immigrant artists
share the mentality of white supremacists who hate freedom even for their fellow minorities.

Fuck all authoritarians!
 
In the near future, inshallah, a Turkish-Armenian rapprochement will be possible through recognition & reparation. In our lifetime. It will help the whole region.
 
It will coincide with the end of the Israeli & Azeri occupations.
 
White America holds the “special privilege and luxury” of trying to confuse the shit out of everybody else.
You do not know the struggles my family experienced.
Having our resources deprived.
We have been conditioned, because of our Middle Eastern
background.
To believe and accept our sufferings as normal.
But you see over time wisdom and faith stood by us.
And now as I emerge like a stallion from the abyss,
I feel more inclined than ever to speak freely and truthfully.
That in these rough times we have faced many betrayals,
social, political and economic.
And all because of the color of our skin.
Because of the way we look and the way we speak.
So as you begin to understand my story and realize why I
am who I am
These truths will become self evident.
I am a dreamer.
But justice is over the horizon.
The noor (light) of my eye has returned.
Now let us bring each other joy.
God willing.
THE US GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE SUED FOR DEPRIVATION OF RESOURCES TO DREAMERS. REPARATIONS FOR ALL DISENFRANCHISED MINORITIES.

Dear Compatriots,

It is finally time to unveil the music video, or short film, for Lavash, the single off my upcoming album. The release date for the video is officially March 20th. It will be viewable here, as a YouTube clip via the “FILM” navigation tab atop the homepage.

The complete album, The World to Come LP, is scheduled for release this coming, mid-April. It will be available for sale via iTunes & streamable via Apple Music, Spotify & TIDAL.

This will mark my debut, self-produced record.

It includes both pop, rock & hip-hop elements and incorporates eastern instrumentation. The theme draws on questions of Armenian and Arab identity within American society, but also beyond the social issues, lie the more personal struggles with love, pride, envy, competition & familial justice. This makes for the variant juxtaposition of somber & comical, uplifting tones throughout the album.

Tune in for more updates, including show dates & new merchandise. The plan is to have Lavash shirts available for sale via the website & at live shows.

I am also working on upgrading the overall website look – this will include the domain name http://www.mynameisdannyk.com. The current one will still work. Both will direct to this website.

Look-out for the video March 20th!

Danny K

WORLD.

My debut Armenian anthemic album of masterful proportions is almost complete and will be dropping THIS November (date & title not yet revealed).

This will include show-dates in and outside of Orlando…

the music video for “Lavash”, the album’s single – and official “Lavash” merch (tees).

The album will be available via all streaming and purchasing outlets (not soundcloud – which means other than “Lavash” – the album won’t be free).
