A year after his debut album The Foundation, Kain returns with 'black: a story told by kain', the first in a pair of EPs offering 2 takes on black experience in America. At the risk of sounding preachy, 'black' focuses on the serious themes of Gentrification, police brutality, and life in the aftermath of the 2016 election to serve as a call to arms for a new generation of activists. The follow up, BEAMS (due Spring 2017), will serve as the lighter side of the coin, showcasing the celebratory spirit and 'turn up' vibe that has come to define contemporary Hip-Hop music in the South.
