DJ DX Sparks Change on New Release, “Run Bro” ft. Nadia Gold Produced by Dirty Fingaz
Hailing from Jersey City, multi-hyphenate artist, Robert Van Liew aka DJ DX addresses the elephant in the room with a new socially conscious single, “Run Bro” featuring Goldie. Coming with a little over 4 minutes of knowledge, “Run Bro” is bar after bar of keen insight, as DJ DX speaks on America’s current state of affairs. Unlike many conscious records coming out, “Run Bro” touches on issues affecting everybody, regardless of race, income level, or social status. Topics such as Flint, Michigan’s ongoing water crisis, the recent surge in police brutality towards innocent Black men, and the devastating 2018 California Wildfires over $3.5 Billion in damages. Overall, leading DJ DX to question the religion he’s been given and demand due to reparations.
“Run Bro” shines in DJ DX’s wisdom and ability to connect the dots, veering off into what most artists are afraid to mention out fear of hurting their pockets or polarizing their fan base. Lines like, “While the rich are getting richer and getting aroused, young men are getting deployed or getting gunned down” and “Honestly, I’m trying to live in sovereignty. But all I see is white cops trying to do harm to me” put DJ DX’s passion for the people on full display. While Western movie-inspired production complements the tracks’ narrative of collective sorrow and change on the horizon. Nadia Gold’s soulful vocals add to its aesthetic, as she lays her lines with calm, cool, and collected authority.
In an overwhelmingly materialistic world where most musicians play follow the leader, DJ DX is bringing Hip Hop back to its original superpower of sparking social change. Listen carefully as he pumps out not only skilled lyricism but nourishing food for thought. Simply put, “Run Bro” is Hip Hop in its highest form. Tune into DJ DX: the voice of the people.
