In this new entry in our ‘Diamonds In The Rough’ category, we want to introduce you to upcoming artist Chucky Blk and his brand new album titled A Scathing Critique of Current Affairs.
The project takes a transparent and hard-hitting look at police brutality and our current state of civil unrest. 2020 has allowed conversations about fairness, equality and brutality to reach the surface which has inspired artists like Chucky to write about their own experiences. In his new album, the intensity of Chucky’s emotions communicates seamlessly through hip hop and spoken word.
In A Scathing Critique of Current Affairs, Chucky discusses how the illusion of security has broken despite our society being at the pinnacle of technological advancements. Despite any progress that has been made, 2020 has proven how quickly we are brought to our knees by old enemies including illness, unemployment andracism. He re-evaluates the American Dream and its lack of fairness for minorities and takes a closer look at the continuation of apocalyptic scenarios we face more regularly than we would like. Chucky’s music is documenting history in real time; musicians have a unique opportunity to create a timeless discussion through art right now and his new album is certainly one for the books. Amplifying his voice only a few days before the most important election of our lifetime will certainly have an impact on both fans and new listeners alike.
