Marci Phonix Speaks His Mind in New Song, ''Black Peter''
When you have something that boggles your mind and need to talk about it, you do it. UK rapper Marci Phonix wasted no time speaking his mind with his latest track titled, ‘’Black Peter’’. A controversial song full of personal opinions that will make you go ‘‘Wow!’’
An instrumental that has a dark vibe, an emotional rapping flow, and plenty of gory sound effects. That’s what you’ll get into this song. And with all these elements, ‘‘Black Peter’’ is amazingly well crafted. A song that educates a new generation on some unspoken truths of our history that often get conveniently swept under the carpet in society. After being inspired by John Lennon’s controversial ’72 song ‘Woman Is The Nigger Of The World’, Marci aims to challenge various modern day taboos and stereotypes with this track and following songs from the project.
Marci sounds like a spokesman of the people in this song since it’s about a new protest anthem. Speaking about the many stereotypes of the BAME community (Black, Asian and minority ethnic people) and unspoken truths and issues that aren’t discussed enough in the UK, Marci’s angry but yet elegant lyrical delivery is quite something. His solid bars may shock you, but they’re also true to a reality we often don’t see or even understand.
The music video that accompanies the song is pretty gory and has this dark-edged anthem that embodies the reality of the subject. Known for his grime style music, the music video is Marci Phonix written all over with some anger-ladened lyrics and punchy lines. Though it is dark in content, it shares light to those who may be ignorant, and reveals the consciousness we need to take as citizens of the free world.
Marci describes ‘‘Black Peter’’ as follows: “This is Michael Jackson’s Thriller meets Grime! The only difference is the monsters in my video are real... and they even get honoured and put on the national currency”. If there’s any artist who can tell all you anything about how politics can corrupt our very conscience the world we live in, it’s Marci Phonix.
