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.”
