Big Narstie has given the visual treatment to his most recent single, “Black Is My Colour (Black Pride)” featuring lover’s rock legend Kofi.
Initially released in October to celebrate Black History Month, this track from Big Narstie is a powerful one that hears the rapper discuss topics such as the Windrush generation, racism and the Brixton riots to paint a picture of the Black British experience over the years.
With Kofi blessing the reggae-infused production with a soulful hook and Narstie delivering lines such as “embrace your culture and remember all your roots”, the collaborative effort is empowering and will definitely resonate with many Black Britons.
Shot in Brixton, the visuals are also a celebration of Black British culture and capture many different generations of the community embracing their heritage.
“I’m proud to come from South London and my Black British experience growing up in Brixton,” Narstie said of the song. “I’m also proud of my Jamaican roots. Big up everyone – Caribbean to UK to Europe to Africa and beyond. BDL (Base Defence League) will continue to rise and drive our culture.”
