Kojey Radical & Frank Gamble: Blind Eye
Came for Frank Gamble and Kojey Radical, stayed for the message. With new single "Blind Eye," the two put a spotlight on the issues in the Middle East, and ask listeners to "pray for the lost ones and never for the haters." The delivery wouldn't cut as deep without such stimulative, forward-thinking production that feels full of angst and fueled from the onlookers with both eyes open.
"The artists I love and respect are the ones that painted a picture of the times they live in," Kojey tells i-D. "I think it's easy to sometimes forget the power and effect of music. The injustices suffered in the world can often make you feel helpless and I've always felt I could do more with my artistry. I'm thankful I grew up in such a melting pot of culture because it allowed me to listen and learn and appreciate different perspectives. I wanted to put a sense of compassion in my art and give something for all generations to listen and appreciate. Frank Gamble and I simply invite you all to love, overall."
