U.K. Hip Hop Artist Blacksmith Delivers “Peace”
Following up his previous singles ‘Represent’ with Leaf Dog and ‘Through The Melody’ with Deli Rowe: Bristol based Blacksmith returns this time with a soulful summer message of ‘Peace’ and has brought in some heavyweights from the U.K and America to help deliver a real message.
Self-produced by Blacksmith ‘Peace’ features members from two of the most iconic Hip Hop groups to come out of Los Angeles: Rakaa of Dilated Peoples and Marc 7 of Jurassic 5 – their first time together on a record. He’s also brought in Knytro known by many for his arena tours with Chase & Status and ‘Project Harpoon’ mixtape and from Bristol the AFT Records head honcho Carasel. The video was shot across Bristol and Los Angeles with Blacksmith travelling out to film on location with Rakaa & Marc and the song has each artist representing what ‘Peace’ means to them, whether that’s politics and protests on home soil, or gang warfare and injustices across the pond: a real message of peace and unity is delivered throughout.
The video also features over 100 appearances filmed worldwide of people coming together to throw up peace signs for the project including the likes of Romesh Ranganthan, JME, Klashnekoff and many more
