Pocket Full of Slave Owners – Muja Messiah ft. Brother Ali & Boots Riley

“There is a definitive unrest coursing through the heart of this country at the moment, and Muja Messiah’s potent new video for “Pocket Full of Slave Owners” taps into that restless frustration and anger that is being voiced in protests in cities throughout the U.S. The bold MC is joined on the track by two renowned lyricists who have never been afraid to speak their minds for causes they believe in — Brother Ali and the Coup’s Boots Riley. The track is both incendiary and inflammatory, rattling the cages of comfortable America by calling into question our status-quo as well as our understanding of history. With the serene setting of the San Francisco coastline as a backdrop, Messiah delivers his fiery verses that only pick up steam as the track rolls on, before Ali and Riley vehemently join in the lyrical fray. Adam Stanzak directed the video, which gives vibrant life to one of the standout tracks on Messiah’s spirited album, God Kissed It The Devil Missed It.” – Erik Thompson for City Pages
