(AllHipHop News) Artist educator MK Asante has decided to take a new approach to violence and ignorance in Hip-Hop as he remixes one of the hottest songs on Talib Kweli & 9th Wonder’s Indie 500 album.
MK and his brother link to remix “Bangers,” which was shot in the streets of Baltimore.
MK told AllHipHop.com, “In ‘Bangers’, we rob people of their ignorance. We wanted to take 9th Wonder’s intro and really show the connection between knowledge, power, and music. We worked with the visual artist Robert The to make one-of-a-kind book guns from my memoir Buck. With Talib Kweli recently re-launching Nkiru Books, the synergy here is beautiful.”
In 2013, MK release a memoir called “Buck,” which was a Washington Post Bestseller in 2014 & 2015. Last year, MK released a soundtrack to the book as well. In the video, MK’s literary work is cut into the shape of a handgun and kids symbolically kill off their ignorance.
