After a long summer filled with essential confrontations, Woes reflects on what he experienced at the Wrigley building downtown, during the first night of the George Floyd protests.
Woes: There’s not much you can do when there’s a line of more than one hundred officers between you and where you are trying to protest. The police were not diffusing the situation in the least. They were abusing their power in every way they could, including personal boxing matches between themselves and the protesters they had their eyes on.
With his new single ‘War’, Woes reminds us that the fight is not over and the root of the problem runs deep.
Woes: Police violence has always been an issue in America. There will always be an underlying tone of superiority which leads to discrimination and abuse of power.
Woes currently resides in Chicago co-running Hungry City Collective, an underground DIY space allowing local and touring artists a platform to showcase their talent.
