Amsterdam underground staple SMIB have had their say on the Black Lives Matter movement, just in case it was in any doubt.
As relevant in The Netherlands as it is here in the UK, USA or elsewhere, ZWART LIVES MATTER conveys that very message of support, resilience and defiance that BLM is about. KC, TADS THOTS, GRGY & RAY FUEGO combine on this frankly brilliant track that spans over six minutes of music.
A trap banger in the front half, it evolves into something a little more experimental and spoken-word-worthy as Mr Fuego takes over from a Kanye West skit. The video shows clips from recent protests in Amsterdam, serving as a reminder that issues of racism aren’t localised to your city, country or even areas where you get your news from.
Ik spreek geen Nederlands maar dit liedje is lekker.
