Hip Hop isn’t dead, it’s official. Just when you think that there is no hope left for Hip Hop’s perception in the mainstream. Along comes a little reminder of what It is capable of. I usually do my own right ups of whatever comes my way but I thought it best to post this one as is.
Today marks the official digital release of Lowkey's single Tears to Laughter through iTunes. The single was first heard when he performed it as a poem at the London protests against the Gaza massacre at the beginning of the year. It has already become the unofficial soundtrack to many protests, university occupations and fundraising events for
Gaza and Palestine across the UK. Lowkey and the single have already received support from the likes of Palestine Solidarity, Tony Benn (Stop the War), Lauren Booth (Aloha Palestine) and George Galloway MP (Respect Party/Viva Palestina). Lowkey and his
record label SO Empire Recordings will be donating all their profits from the sales of the single to the DEC's Gaza appeal.
"The Palestinian people of Gaza have suffered and continue to suffer a terrible injustice. We need everyone of goodwill to give them whatever support is possible. Lowkey has produced a brilliant song to express his solidarity with Gaza and Palestine. I hope you will buy it and listen to it. Above all, I hope you will be inspired by it to do whatever you can to
ensure that we all remember Gaza and that the call for Palestine to be free grows ever louder."
George Galloway MP
“This is for Palestine, Ramallah, West Bank, Gaza,
This is for a child that is searching for an answer,
I wish I could take their tears and replace them with laughter,
Long Live Palestine, Long Live Gaza...”
