STRICKNINE X TRAGEDY KHADAFI ft. KRS-ONE & A.G – “MODERN DAY GANGSTA”
Queensland representative Dj and producer STRICKNINE has been gettin’itin both locally and internationally. Expect to see a heap of hot new joints releasing in the near future. Right now he’s in New York City filming a video with Queensbridge OG BLAQ POET and putting the final touches on his album with TRAGEDY KHADAFI. Check the write up and track below ‘MODERN DAY GANGSTA’.
Modern Day Gangsta is a verbal threat, a written retaliation to the current state of corruption riddling broad levels of our systems of authority. This wake up call to the passive, launches with TRAGEDY KHADAFI drawing comparison between political domination and ruling in the streets, with the lyrical finesse of a veteran steeped in 30 years of Queensbridge history. KRS-ONE returns as “The Teacha”, educating us on the infiltration of corporate America by gangster tacticians. A.G. (DITC) characterizes one of the numerous victims of police murder with a sombre hostility that draws a firm line in the pavement.
Three of Hip Hop’s luminaries combine over baneful strings delivered in a landscape of energy by producer STRICKNINE (MF Grimm, Thirstin Howl, Blaq Poet) to re-establish a message that is more relevant now than ever before: “I think it’s time we all stand up”.
