Numan Cole shares his poignant & powerful new single, ‘Mid Scream’
Location: Planet Earth
FFO: Mystic, Queens D. Light
Label: Sukhbinder Singh
Conscious hip-hop never sounded so conscious. Numan Cole‘s latest single ‘Mid Scream’ is a poignant snapshot into the current human experience – told through the lens of “someone who knocked over a young woman in a car, and returned to save her life.”
It’s a striking metaphor – relating this tragic tale to Earth herself, and the irreversible damage we are causing through pollution and environmental abuse. Cole asks the question: is it too late to save her?
Sonically, it’s a beautiful cornucopia of genre, crafting an artsy blend of synth-wave electronica, haunting hip-hop, downtempo soul and a subtle splash of break-beat DnB.
