The skin colour has been a topic of discussion among many for centuries but is Jesus Christ black, or white? Many sects of Christianity have pictured the Messiah as a black man complete with an afro, while others recognize a blue eyed, long flowing hair white individual. Today, the trio of Leno Banton, Blvk H3ro, and The Grei Show say “everything black” in their new track, “Black Jesus“. Produced by SNR Beats, the Artists speak on their interpretation of the physical appearance of GOD’s son, and their desire to follow and learn from him. Expect this one to make some noise, stay woke! The debates will continue, but the interpretations are up to you. Artwork by Paige Zxmbie! Check out the track below, and follow us on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
As 2017 comes to a close, we look back at a few songs that were favourites on the Blog for the year. While we can’t name EVERY one, we’ll give you 5 (in no particular order so hold off on the ego) to reminisce on, or get familiar with.
Starting at #5, is “Meanwhile” by the duo of Recording Artists Leno Banton and Royal Blu. Produced by JLL, the track was released in March and features the Artists going bar for bar, and pound for pound like two Heavyweight contenders in the ring. With a mix of lyrics, flows and melodies from the two, it would’ve been nice to get a collaborative EP from them next year (hint hint). Artwork provided by Paige Zxmbie and Khari Kamau. Bless up, check out “Meanwhile” below.
