Three thousand miles to the north, allies in Southern California heard the voices of Colombians and pledged their support. Rapper Nemesis of the incendiary hip-hop group Pure Order recognized the Latin American dissidents as fellow travelers. She understood that Bogotá faces many of the same challenges that Los Angeles does: abuses of power, poverty, discrimination, lack of opportunity, and a lack of love. Yet in keeping with the relentless positivity of her rhymes, her response wasn’t acrimonious. Instead, she composed her verse to “Mi Fiesta” — and shared this slamming Yodaroc beat with Niclasz and Rapsodika of the Colombian rap group Voces del Silencio.

The result is a one-off single that feels like part of a sustained revolution: a party song designed to quicken the pulse of marchers and protesters around the globe.  Some of the verses are in English and some are en Español, but the fundamental message of solidarity, self-respect, and belief in people’s power comes through in any language. Producer Yodaroc’s track fuses the celebratory quality of contemporary Colombian pop with the urgency and drive of Los Angeles underground rap and the directness of Midwestern hip-hop. If Nemesis, Niclasz, and Rapsodika sound absolutely at home on this beat, that’s because it’s theirs by birthright.


JWAVY’s “BEASTMODE” is inspired by her favorite football player, former Seattle Seahawk Pro-Bowler Marshawn Lynch, and proudly goes “all in” on city and self-pride. She is independent and does not take guff from anyone, and her confident tone would expunge any fake people that get in her way. You better talk to her nicely; She knows she is the woman to do it all, and everyone around her knows it. City lights radiate through the sky and serve as the spotlight for JWAVY and her deep dive into hip-hop and style. Her face is highlighted in the darkness using tungsten light, emphasizing every single feature of her natural beauty and talent. She has piles of cash in her hands and pockets, which she fans to keep her cool from her music being too incendiary. With homage paid to her Emerald City, JWAVY keeps it real and is in her element.
