Theodor Black – SUB CULTURE [Video]

Theodor Black takes aim at racial injustices in his new single ‘SUB CULTURE’. Produced and performed entirely by the man himself, the track snaps back at everything from segregated buses to disproportionate stop-and-searches of people of colour. 

The South London MC fires off some seriously heartfelt verses that show his aptitude for proper penmanship. This won’t come as surprise for fans, seeing as Black is a former member of the capital’s Reservoir collective, alongside the likes of Virgil Hawkins and Yasmin Leigh. But now he’s got it all covered alone.

Through its greyscale colouring, the music video also emphasises the disparity between black and white experiences. It was inspired by Matthieu Kassovitz’s 1995 film ‘La Haine’, which presents Paris’ ghettos in the chiaroscuro light of neo noir. Check it out below and stream ‘SUB CULTURE’ via all online distributors. Get yourself ready because Theodor Black’s new EP GARÇON lies just around the corner.
