The intro track to the audio cine­mat­ic album #Res­ist­ant­So­ci­ety from Lalya Pars & Tony Wilson.

Wel­come to the future finds Khris­ti­an Guy (rap­per Tony Wilson) rap­ping fero­ciously as the evil Glory Inc. Régime led by the men­acing Judas Pearl, invades the city of Babylon The Great, mur­der­ing and oppress­ing its people. Leav­ing those alive branded with the mark of Pearl, Khris­ti­an Guy, begins his action packed quest to lead the Res­ist­ance against the oppress­ive régime.

#Res­ist­ant­So­ci­ety drops on all major digit­al retail­ers and stream­ing sites August 5th, 2016!

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.”
