There’s not many voices in Hip-Hop right now that are as commanding, as Karega Bailey. Born in Brooklyn, Bailey’s parents emigrated from Jamaica and relocated to Sacramento when he was a child. Now, the award-winning spoken word poet, D.C. educator, and politically minded emcee is eager to spread his message to the masses.
Endorsed by Public Enemy’s, Chuck D on his online rap station, ‘Songs That Mean Something,’ Bailey is definitely on rap’s radar. His forthcoming extended player, Peace King, drops at the end of January. In anticipation of the release, Bailey is pleased to unveil the visuals for “Sunny Days,” the EP’s fifth track. Produced by EOM, and directed by JaeSynth, the video features Cali-based emcees, Mark Knoxx and Chaycin Change, and boasts Malcolm Stokes on the trumpet.
“They crucify the truth, but yo, I’m here to resurrect…I spit the truth and nothing less,” raps Bailey. Whether he’s addressing the civil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri or his brother’s recent passing, Bailey is here to provide the much needed healing that the nation needs through the power of his music.
