Resistance Society is a provocative futuristic album inspired by Tony’s favorite books and movies, The Hunger Games and V for Vendetta. Set in the year 2200, where the evil Glory Inc. régime invades the city of Babylon the Great, oppressing and enslaving its citizens. Branding their foreheads with the mark of the Pearl, in honor of the regimes leader Judas Pearl. Tony raps under the moniker Khristian Guy, the leader of the resistance, who is ferociously narrating his way through this action packed story of, pain, struggle, perseverance and the will to unite people in order to stand against oppressive governmental forces.
“Although the characters are fictional, and the setting futuristic. The content is real and heavily influenced by today’s political and human rights climate. More specifically, the issues America is currently facing in regards to police brutality and the numerous unlawful killings of African Americans. As an African American myself, I am very aware of the issues as 9 times I have encountered prejudice police who have pulled a gun on me without any provocation on my end. As a 30-year-old adult, I have never held a gun or committed a single crime, and have still found myself victimized by what is becoming a militarized police force and a government like America that does not hold officers accountable, therefore not protecting their own citizens. Resistant Society is meant to create thought provoking discussion and represent action and hope for people to understand that together, we can unite! Through our action we can create the love and change that is much needed in this world. Side note: The Resistance does not believe in using guns, which has to do with my personal philosophy that guns are a part of the world’s problem.”
