For his latest single, ‘Fall’, up and coming Colorado born and raised hip hop artist Kouta used his platform to speak out about the injustices in the middle east. Given that so few people are willing to speak out about the conflict, Fall leaves you utterly floored as familiar thought starts to resonate.
Kouta proves that you don’t need to pick a political side to demand an end to destruction and devastation. Standing alone one song won’t change the world, but it can cause a positive ripple effect of positive and progressive change by opening up minds and making sure the conversation stays fixed on subjects that we need to address.
Fall may leave you with a lump in your throat, but it’s an emotional rollercoaster worth riding. It hits just as hard as Eminem’s Toy Soldiers. Kouta uses music as an outlet, but by the time it hits the airwaves, it has the potential to work as everyone’s means of catharsis. It’s a much-appreciated olive branch of connection when it is so easy to feel isolated by your anger and anxiety.
Fall is now available to stream via YouTube.
