"BROWN PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT RELIGION SHOULDN'T ALWAYS HAVE TO BE SERIOUS"
By: The Enemy Staff
Big Baby Gandhi is back to blessing the masses with another ill video; a self-described warm-up to his upcoming summer project 27, slated for release July 28th. 1515 as an audiovisual concept is pure crack, with Gandhi sporting improved video production, more gats (or maybe one gat passed around between the homies?), and the wild non-rhyming rhyme scheme. The track is available for free download as well.
By the editorial tone of this small write-up, one may surmise that we're psyched on the prospect of a Gandhi tape for the summer and you're fucking right. Between NO1 2 LOOK UP 2, America Eats Its Babies, and DEBUT, the SF-residing Queens artist has a catalogue that speaks for itself, and speaks loudest to those indelibly linked to the South Asian immigrant & Muslim experiences. Gandhi's vision for 1515 comments specifically on this link: On the concept of the video, he states to The Enemy: "1515, if you write it out, it's just a tongue-in-cheek way to say ISIS. The video is meant to poke fun at how brown ppl are portrayed as terrorists all the time, and it's just connotated with everything we do. It can be tiring. I wanted it to be something that you could joke about and not have it be taken so seriously. Like, why do we have to condemn terrorism? I'm not really linked to that, I'm as non-linked as an ordinary white person, it's kind of a joke that I even have to condemn it."
Shout out to all the beautiful brown people and thank you BBG.
