Benjamin Zephaniah breaks down the media’s (brainwashing) tactics

Pure wisdom in my opinion, as a slam poet extroadinaire, this piece entitled ‘Rong Radio Station’ is lyrical wisdom with a varied and strong set of influences in terms of delivery, content and political stance. I know he doesn’t rap but I can’t think of any emcee from our shores that bring consciousness in this way, apart from perhaps Scorzayzee (especially with his track ‘Great Britain’), Skinnyman, or Chester P. I think it’s fair to say he’s the UK’s equivalent of KRS ONE when acapella? This was brought to you by Just So Films and is part of a series called The Black Cab Sessions, getting (mainly indie) artists to do their thing in the back of a black taxi somewhere in the Big Smoke.
