2011 has seen a highly consistent level of video output from London’s Genesis Elijah
With his new album “I Aint Even Started Bruv” due out in early 2012, he returned to his ‘Civil Unrest’ EP originally released in early 2010 and ahead of his collaboration with Krate Krusaders on the album “Before I Was Famous” to film a new video for the track “Bellyfull”
The track predicts the riots and civil unrest seen in London and elsewhere in the UK during the summer of 2011, and was shot on the site of Occupy London outside St Paul’s Cathedral. This particular site was chosen by protestors due to it neighbouring the heart of the city’s banking centre….they had in fact tried to occupy the banking district but were moved on.
The protest itself gained further publicity as it led to resignations within the church as internal disagreements whether to support the action left positions untenable. They have vowed to remain in position until at least the new year, and the video contains live footage of Gen performing for people there
Also look out for Genesis Elijah appearing on 2 tracks for Ohio based MC Copywrite’s new album God Save The King which will be released in the UK in March 2012. These tracks also feature Mystro, Iron Braydz and Royce da 5 9.
