On The Needle: Peace Not War x Exclusive
Nina Simone once famously said the duty of an artist is to reflect the times. By all accounts Exclusive has taken that sentiment to heart on his hard-hitting new song "Peace Not War". Over an ominous and brooding track, a number of current events are touched upon including George Floyd, police brutality, education, the importance of voting, and the overall political landscape. 2020 has shaped up to be a very tumultuous year and this song perfectly expresses the frustrations that are being dealt with. In the future when this year comes up, "Peace Not War" can be used as a time capsule to perfectly illustrate the state of disarray and how it all came to a head.
