New York has always been home for top shelve rapper 5ive. His lastest single “Homicide” is a gritty social statement expressed by New York rapper 5ive. The drama takes place over an ethnic melody supported by subtle strings. The statement 5ive makes is direct and unsettling.
The song offers a description of New York streets as seen through the eyes of the artist. In this project, Art is used as reflection of the times it is made in. Uncertain times are ahead of us as we have been divided and conquered from within as a country. Police misconduct, racism, fake news, and addiction to technology leads to murder.
