BIRDZ releases a statement; “BLACK LIVES MATTER”, a new song to be premiered at the A.B. ORIGINAL SOLD OUT show at the Worker’s Club, Melbourne on Thursday.
The BAD APPLES MUSIC signee is making a statement; the epidemic of race related oppression choking his people never ceases. A 14-year-old boy murdered in Kalgoorlie, children gassed in detention, a 22-year-old woman died in custody, 120 communities unapologetically closed – for what? There is no reasonable answer.
The rise of the BLACK LIVES MATTER movement in Australia is unmistakeable, it seems however the privileged people of power, government, police, fellow citizens are turning their headphones off and not listening. Instead, delaying a response with empty promises and Royal Commissions, implying Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People must sit quietly and hope for justice.
BIRDZ is one of the country’s most exciting hip-hop acts on the rise this year, having supported THE FUNKOARS & A.B. ORIGINAL whilst performing two explosive showcases at BIGSOUND. The Butchulla man will not stay quiet; he will not wait for perceived justice for his people – BLACK LIVES MATTER is his declaration for change.
