Ras Ceylon, an educator, community organizer, and recording artist based out of Oakland, California has recruited Queensbridge juggernaut Tragedy Khadafi (Intelligent Hoodlum) and Brooklyn’s Wu-Tang verbal-swordsman, Timbo King (Royal Fam), to fight on the frontlines of the concrete jungle for We The People, navigating righteous souls through this poisonous world of elitist treachery and deception. Together, these three lyrical lions form the “Frontline Generalz” in pursuit of empowering the youth and arming them with the essential tools needed to build a better tomorrow.
As we have all been recently reminded during the global coronavirus pandemic, frontline workers play a significant role in economic growth. These workers are defined as representatives that provide essential services to the general public including education, health care, public safety, and local/national government leadership. Ras Ceylon’s “Frontline Generalz” does all of the above and more, with each emcee skillfully gift-wrapping lessons, immortalized over producer Dawit Justice’s hypnotizing soundscape, a powerful follow-up to their 2018 Tragedy Khadafi, Ras Ceylon & Dawit Justice “Full Medal Jacket” EP ( https://rasceylon.bandcamp.com/album/… ). The visuals, directed by Hostage Media, masterfully provide a glimpse through the window of three generals meeting like Knights of the Round Table to administer much-needed change in our politically polluted society.
Ras Ceylon, who also works closely with The Black Panther Party Cubs, led by Chairman Fred Hampton Jr., in addition to being a member of Sizzla Kalonji’s Judgement Yard Family, spoke about “Frontline Generalz” stating, “This song reflects the revolutionary lifestyle we strive to live. I have always used my music as a tool to wake up the masses and expose corruption. Frontline Generalz delivers a message of hope for Hip-Hop and healing for the world, and we vow to continue to serve the people in solidarity with the struggle of liberation.”
“Frontline Generalz”, which has peaked at #1 on the Hip Hop Gods Radio Top 20 Chart, is available now on all major/digital streaming platforms.
