Jords shares a powerful message in “Black & Ready”
11 Jun 2020
Jords is back after the release of his successful project, “Almost An Adult” to bring us another introspective offering called, “Black & Ready”.
Compelled by our current climate the rapper channels his raw response to all those who have fallen at the hands of police brutality into thought-envoking poetics.
During, Jords proclaims, “I’m just an angry black man trying to find a way,” – this lyric is a simple yet accurate articulation of how the black community is feeling at this present time.
In a statement the rapper further expands on his views:
Right now, I am an angry black man.
One of many angry black people.
One of many hurt black people.
But also, one of many passionate black people.
One of many determined black people.
One of many brilliant black people.
I am done complaining. It’s time for us to build.
I will do all that I can to help build the black community in any way.
I put my emotions into a song, and we will be donating all the profits of this song to The Black Curriculum, a social enterprise founded in 2019 to address the lack of Black British history in the UK Curriculum.
This is just the start.
It’s time to own who we are, own what we do, and build what we own.
I love being black.
I am Black And Ready.
All profits from Black & Ready will be donated to ‘The Black Curriculum’. Stream the track below!
