Kabaka Pyramid rescues listeners from toxic system
Jamaica's rising vocalist Kabaka Pyramid has unleashed his brand-new video for 'Can't Breathe', his first single from his forthcoming debut album, 'Contraband'.
The executive producer for the album is Damian Marley, and it is being distributed by Ghetto Youths International and Bebble Rock Music.
Can't Breathe, which is available for stream and download, delivers a potent message on painful and stressful situations individuals face living in a toxic system, literally and figuratively. The track was produced by Genis Tranis Nadal, and the video, which premiered via VIBE on Wednesday, was directed by Fernando Hevia.
"I was watching Lauryn Hill Unplugged, and I was struck by the emotions she put in her songs, and I wanted the people that listen to this song to get that same feeling. The stress and strain of the system and the mental pollution we are fed day to day reminds me of feeling claustrophobic and suffocated," Kabaka Pyramid said.
