Fast rising talent Abra Cadabra turns political as he releases his latest visual, the aptly titled “Hood Politics“, premiering exclusively on GRM Daily. This is his second release of 2018 for the North London rapper, following up from “F**k Valentines” with Kush.
Directed by Jay Parpworth, Abra is sincere and heartfelt as he addresses the duality of the negative connotations surrounding the genre of music that he makes, the hardships of growing up in his Tottenham hometown and life struggles. Staged in a mock talent show audition, he performs to a host of judges who have openly split views on his act.
This is probably the most poignant we’ve ever seen Abra as this video comes off the back of the recent spike of violent murders of young people in and around London and is dedicated to two victims of the recent onslaught and fellow North London residents, Kwabena Nelson and Tanesha Melbourne.
