Manchester’s hip-hop/poet J CHAMBER‘s EP, ‘Escape The Kingdom’, covers topics of being a black and British in Great Britain today – the kind of hard-hitting topics that are often swept under the carpet.
Over predominantly reggae driven beats, J Chambers touches on slavery, the migration of Windrush generation to the UK and the harsh and unwelcomed treatment they’ve received by the British people (listen to ‘Freedom Ain’t Free.’)
Through his distinctively manc-catchy flow, J Chambers also discusses that the dependents of the Windrush generation also experience the same treatment and any contributions made by the black community are often overlooked by the British society.
‘Escape The Kingdom’ also has a theme of black liberation by offering strong encouragement of stamping out any prejudices and racism that comes to path. Speaking of the project, J Chambers says he wanted it to really “resonate with young children” .
