“…But they can’t relate to our struggle, my nigga. We came up from slavery.”
This piece while based upon the freestyle ‘We Made It’ from Jay Electronica, draws from the lyrics above for this motif. Jay looks off into the distance, dressed in NOI garb bearing the name of Ward Fard Muhammad. Above his head brother Malcolm’s glasses illuminate the past, a reflection of where Jay Electronica finds his ‘Blackness’. On the left, Ward Muhammad, on the right the Sphinx of Gisa, it’s nose restored. Below the frames, the chains of slavery, our bondage broken, in the pieces we find Islam, the star and crescent moon. We made it.
