Leading activist, Killer Mike was one of the earliest voices in the campaign for the nomination of Bernie Sanders as the democratic presidential candidate. While the world watches aghast at the shocking outcome of the presidential election, what comes next has us bracing ourselves for a long road ahead. It may just take till ‘2100’ to fix this damn mess we’re in.
Killer Mike and ELP decided to share a new track from their forthcoming RTJ3 album as an antidote to the election result, releasing ‘2100’ with a personal message to friends and family.
Expect the forthcoming months to head into a further low of hate speech with campaigns from more alt-right populist parties across Europe hitting the headlines. Brace yourselves voices of reason may not be widely heard in the mainstream but they’re out there if you care to engage. If you are finally are getting a wake up call – get engaged, participate and get involved.
You defeat the devil when you hold onto hope
“For our friends. For our family. For everyone who is hurting or scared right now. Here is a song we wrote months ago. We weren’t planning on releasing it yet but… Well it feels right, now. It’s about fear and it’s about love and it’s about wanting more for all of us. It’s called 2100. We hope it finds you well. ” – Love, Jaime and Mike (Run The Jewels)
