Lo Key belongs to chose kind of very complete and creative artists who manage to combine various styles of music and who stay true to the roots of hip hop culture at the same time. Hailing from Ann Arbor, Michigan, Lo Key doesn’t shy away from political engagement. His FGWB (Fuck George W. Bush) song starts with some piano sounds combined with prayer alike vocals and catchy beats, pointing out the dramatic background. The artist’s voice is combined with dark and rapid sounds. Lo Key urges people to watch the news and to open their eyes.
Â«Â I see the pain in the rise, the fear of the system, they’re crying for peace but nobody listensâ€¦Â Â»
Because of greedy politicians, so many innocent lives are taken away. Suicidal bombers spread death around them all around the world. Politicians start hypocritical Â«Â anti terrorist campaignsÂ Â» forgetting that they (George Bush in particular) are the main cause of those disasters.
Nice Â«Â Fuck G.W Bush anthemÂ Â» that probably won’t leave engaged hip hop lovers indifferent.
