Song taken from the new EP “Inappropriate Behaviour”
Inappropriate Behaviour is a project that was initiated by Rootwords who wished to give Hip Hop fans exclusive songs inspired by different trends such as the classic boom bap, trap, and modern rap.
In the purest spirit of Hip Hop, he hit up several beatmakers (Dubmatix, Monsieur F, GR! & Hook, Tismé, Cello Prod) who each have their own unique sound and universe, along with some special artists to lay their vocals on his new songs.
Consequently, Inappropriate Behaviour turned out to be a project of international proportions with collaborations from no less than four continents (Africa, America, Asia, Europe).
One song of this EP was released every 25th of the month, starting from January 2016, made available for free download on Soundcloud along with a video shared on various social media platforms.
“Corruption is everywhere. Have a look around. Where can you not see any corruption? Nothing is pure anymore, not even the air. We are constantly being forced to choose the lesser of two evils, and some of us don’t even question our choices. We are a lazy generation, and machines do the majority of the work for us. We no longer depend on the natural cycle of the seasons for our needs, instead we violate the cycle of life by requesting what we want whenever we want. The world is off balance, and we continue to push the tilt.
The root of the problem is at the top of the pyramid. That is where the corruption is most rampant. The decisions and delinquency of those at the top trickles down and effects those at the bottom – who get hit the hardest. This is the layer cake.
Inspired by a fantastic digital new age riddim by Dubmatix, I wrote this song to remind people of where they are, what they are doing; and especially to ask themselves if they are aware of what is going on. The devil you know is better than the devil you don’t, so please just open up your eyes! ”
