“The internet is fake, but my content is real.”
These are the words which with BlackLiq starts off his new single, “The Culture”, from his new album fully produced by fellow richmond resident DEJECT aka Bando Mane, THE LIE.
The hidden expectations that are placed upon modern artists to “pay to play”, “sell out” and follow guidelines like “promotion over product”. All the while the artist is left wondering how much of it is the public/fans in on?
From this dislike and disgust of hawking for the grand sparkling lie and joining the chorus of contradiction that most artists pool into, “The Culture” is the sign that says: “Enough”.
