Marci Phonix has been labeled as somewhat of a spokesman for the people after blasting Tory MP Kwasi Kwarteng live on air on Channel 4 News over the Windrush scandal earlier this year. Returning with a provocative new project; a series of tracks (underpinned by a consistent narrative throughout) called #BlackFriday – he’s announced this with its first track entitled ‘Black Peter’
Never one to pull any punches, the track comes with a dark-edged and gruesome music video, perfectly in time for Halloween, and the track itself boasts a no-nonsense heavy grime production that Marci is known for. Add some anger-ladened bars and clever and one lines and you’ve got a Marci classic.
This is Michael Jackson’s Thriller meets Grime! The only difference is the monsters in my video are real… and they even get honoured and put on the national currency
Described as “the new protest anthem the world needs right now” by Complex UK, his previous track ‘Liberties’ was an attack on the government, the local council and those behind the failings at Grenfell Tower. It was supported and championed by Spotify’s Grime Shutdown, BBC 1 Xtra, Capital Xtra, Noisey, Trench and lots more.
