Waking up everyday in Donald Trump’s America wondering how he’ll ultimately top the day before has become the new normal it seems. With each decision seemingly more headshakingly ignorant than the last, the future looks bleak at the moment. But that’s where resistance movements stem from and the anthems born alongside. DMV collective RDGLDGRN’s [pronounced Red, Gold, Green] “Opera” is the latest such example.
Actually written a year ago, the lyrics still lend themselves to the political goings-on of the day as Pierre Desrosiers [Green, for those paying attention] laments over a society singling out and persecuting certain sects and railing against the daily struggle that goes in hand. It’s classic hip-hop lyricism in a sense, set to a hard-hitting, contemporary mix. And let’s not forget veteran MC Method Man lending an inspirative flow of his very own to the cause.
