Dumbfoundead Addresses These Turbulent Times In “Harambe”
Dumbfoundead has just dropped the video to his latest track “Harambe”, where he sheds light on the current political unrest from police and gang violence. The song title is in homage to the slain gorilla Harambe.
The L.A. native gives us some unflinchingly poignant visuals of social and political outrage in the United States and other countries. If you look close enough, you might even catch a moment from the Los Angeles Riots from 1992. According to FADER in a direct quote, he was inspired by the horrible incident along with everything else that was happening around that time.
“This was around the time the gorilla shooting happened and we came up with ‘Harambe,” he said. “I felt that this was the energy in the world during that time that I needed to address.”
The “Harambe” video matches the frenzied energy of the record and it reflects the turbulent times of the world around him as like he says, “The world is a zoo”.
