Kojey Radical explores racial identity in dark visuals for "Open Hand"

As we said a little while back, London word-smith Kojey radical is a rising star, and his latest work Open Hand is a dark, brooding masterpiece - now he's delivered the the visuals to it. Media collective and Kojey's long-term collaborators The Rest have fashioned a gripping visual accompaniment to the spoken word piece that explores its harrowing content, and it was premiered at London's Tate Modern last week. In the video Kojey contorts himself with brutal krump movements as he spits his vitriolic commentary on social divide, accompanied a parade of charged racial symbols and the rumble of 808's that makes up The New Machine's shadowy trap production Watch Open Hand below.
