February 4, 2016

Check out this freestyle video from Brazilian rapper Moah preforming ‘Basquiat’, a track about the lifestyle of black Brazilian and the rich creative culture of the community. “The song is also about doing it yourself, because we can’t wait for our corrupt government to have an awakening, this needs to come from ourselves. We can’t be “hostages of the status quo, can’t be ‘new slaves’,” Moah tells AFROPUNK.
