Music: Tenesha The Wordsmith – Madea​/​Dangerous Women EP

The short new release from Oakland, California based poet Tenesha The Wordsmith is dense with racially charged lyrics, telling stories of the racial sufferings of black people in America. An incredibly saddening story of the injustices they have faced in the past and in the present tense, it is backed with DJ Khalab’s tribal rhythms, with xylophones and other unsettling percussion. Madea/Dangerous Woman EP, while only two tracks long, feels like an eternal struggle. It is a true testament to Tenesha’s poignant and vivid lyricism, a quality that brings depth of heart and soulful emotion to music that sounds so raw and authentic.

You can listen to Madea/Dangerous Woman EP below via Bandcamp. Make sure to support the music in any way you can. Released on On The Corner Records.

I hope to start a podcast and documentary-style project soon.
