Hail­ing from the Neth­er­lands, Lon­don based rap­per Ravy releases her latest empower­ing single “DECOL­ON­IZE Your BRAIN” togeth­er with pro­du­cer Ruben Azziz, known for his pro­duc­tions “Lights Down” by Celina Sharma, Ivori­an Doll, Stoneb­woy in the USA and “Kuma” by Eneida Marta in Guinée Bis­sau, amongst oth­er coun­tries.

“DECOL­ON­IZE Your BRAIN” is their own style of Hip Hop blen­ded with Elec­tric sounds and heavy drums, serving a catchy and infec­tious blend that stands out imme­di­ately.

On “DECOL­ON­IZE Your BRAIN” Ravy raps about their view on the world being dis­il­lu­sioned by pro­pa­ganda, hate and it’s time to turn things around with the truth, no mat­ter how harsh it might sound.

In the “DECOL­ON­IZE Your BRAIN” video, Ravy and Ruben depicts how Europe’s wealth has been built and names sev­er­al icon­ic free­dom fight­ers from sev­er­al coun­tries that didn’t back down until their last breath. Fol­low­ing “Hush” and “KICKIN’ IT”, it seemed the right time to drop their third col­lab­or­a­tion on Black His­tory Month, edu­cat­ing the listen­ers with a little his­tory class pro­duced by Bis­sau-Guinean pro­du­cer and long­time col­lab­or­at­or Ruben Azziz.

Speak­ing about the track Ravy states,

“Being of Sur­i­n­amese Indi­an ori­gin, I have always had to deal with racism and false inform­a­tion about my cul­ture and black cul­ture, even by people of col­or. This is where I star­ted to do my own research and read books, watch doc­u­ment­ar­ies, vis­it museums, talk to act­iv­ists, his­tor­i­ans, etc. to write the lyr­ics and sim­pli­fy it for the people. In the West­ern world we learn everything about World War 2, but what about the oth­er wars and gen­o­cide? We have to become aware of how it all star­ted to under­stand the world we live in now. We have to become aware of the truth.”
