dua saleh decries police violence on “body cast”

June 2, 2020

Lately I’ve had plaster on my mind
County ain’t on shit they got bodies on the line

Every day the situation calls for a new anthem. Dua Saleh’s “body cast” is exactly what we need right now. The Minneapolis artist and activist’s latest is a hard-hitting paean to the conflict, trauma, and tireless fight for justice. The video enumerates the names of unarmed Black people killed by police while the artist declares: “we will not accept any more.”

Dua Saleh is donating 100% of proceeds from Bandcamp purchases to Women for Political Change. They explain “This is a song I made with Psymun last year and intended to save it for a project in the future but I can’t wait that long with what is happening in my city of Minneapolis. This song is about police brutality and injustice. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Women for Political Change who are mobilizing their efforts for real change. All of the names listed in this video were unarmed black people killed by police in recent years. Please consider donating more than the suggested price (if you’re able to) Thank you.”
