TheColorGrey is ready.
The Antwerp prodigy is breaking out across Europe, his finely honed rap style matching to diasporic connections that move from West Africa to the Caribbean and beyond.
Dropping a full EP recently, standout track 'Jamaica' is already a favourite with fans, an anthem that speaks eloquently about identity and ownership.
Romelu Lukaku and Dries Mertens have been giving him shoutouts, and the hype is only set to rise after the video for 'Jamaica' drops.
Playing with the island's iconic yellow, green, and black coding, TheColorGrey bills the video as "all about renaissance, the past, and the future..."
He explains: "For some, Jamaica is all about yellow, green and black. Rasta and dreadlocks. For us however, it’s all about renaissance, the past, and the future. A surreal and anachronistic place."
"And the video is a reflection of that. We recreated the past with our phantasy. The story is a metaphor for ‘taking what’s ours’ and a warning that the ‘Powers that be’ never can rest too comfortably. We’re coming for what’s ours."
