The #WAR EP was created as a collaborative effort with a T-shirt line from Royal Dynamite designed by Arnold Randall Art, and music from AG One Entertainment and an educational package from RD Cares (royaldynamite.com/collabos/
"WAR is the realization that we can all fight for what we believe, we can all change our path, we can all WAR against whatever we see as a barrier. Nothing stays the same forever." - Arnold Randall
Where Brutis Perux got his inspiration for #WAR:
I’m trying to think, what really was the start? We had gone to the Yehri-Wi-Cry event and that’s when RD pitched me the idea of doing an EP for their new line…at the time it was real open ended; we didn’t know where we were going to take, we just knew that we were going to collab on this project.
That night I started working on some music. I started writing a song concept:
They have no peace, unless there’s #war
They have no joy, unless the mothers are crying; children are dying
But after coming up with that idea, I got stuck. So I decide to call it a night and while I was driving home it hit me. What kind of people would let this happen, and more importantly who are the people that could stand up and do something about it – make a difference. I don’t know how I came up with the acronym, but #WAR became “We Are Royal” and the royalty signifies the people that are willing to stand up for injustice of all bondage. The song concept became the spirit of the project, and that was the place in which I dove in to create the sound.
