STOGIE T: GOD'S EYE
God’s Eye is a gift from the god emcee, Stogie T, to the youth of his beloved mother land in the memory and respect of the martyrs slain by the fascist white supremacist regime in 1976, June the 16th. This pioneering track is in the spirit of celebrating the class of ‘76's commitment to black excellence and rejection of mediocrity in whatever endeavours young black people pursue. It’s not for radio, television, club or any other commercial consumption. It’s documentary in style, reflective in content, delivered with exquisite skill that is second to none. Stogie T imagines what God had witnessed in the tapestry of history. He touches both the mundane and the serious. He raps as a slave trader during the Atlantic slave trade, he addresses the global Black Lives Matter movement, he raps as a lieutenant in the dystopia that is the terrorist Islamic State, he touches on humanity’s quest to find meaning for our existence, he funnily addresses the lives of the rich and aspirational, and talks about petty and destructive pathologies of hatred, envy and jealousy that are part and parcel of being human.
