In this period of totally justifiable social unrest, not only in U.S.A., but globally, after the brutal murder of George Floyd, many artists have been inspired and composed music about this horrific incident of absurd violence.
On the contrary, as regards to societal reaction, a few months back, and specifically on February 23rd, an unarmed 25-year-old African-American, named Ahmaud Arbery was shot & killed while jogging, for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Not by a cop that time, but by two white citizens… Just cause the man was black or of different colour if you prefer.
The anthem ‘Life Of A Black Man‘ by J Chase, whose ‘purpose is to raise awareness about the injustice that took 2 months to make its way into the light for all to see‘, by all means applies to both, aforementioned cases, among numerous others over the past few years.
Tonight’s exclusive premiere on Last Day Deaf, is a powerful, soulful, conscious hip-hop track with meaningful lyrics by a more than propitious artist. Enough from us….
J Chase emerged out of the capital city of Lansing, Michigan in the early 2010s, first as a teenager with local group Black Diamond, and later as a solo artist. Born Joseph Washington, he adopted the J Chase moniker as his music career began to take off with the release of early mixtapes like Gumbo and Welcome to My Reality. His exposure increased with gigs opening for Big Sean, Bun B, Cardi B, B.O.B., Juicy J, Rich Homie Quan, Rich The Kid, Kid Ink, and other well-known acts, and by 2018 he’d found additional success his newest single Friend Zone on the label MNS Records the song was premiered on billboard.com.
