“Eye Run It”, by Jaefkae and Abeatchemist, is a sprite of Chicago RAP. JaefKae will definitely blow your mind on “Get Wit It”, rapping about the cradle-to-grave pipeline faced by Black Indigenous youth. Hear the elements of Hip-Hop, the Wepa, the inspirations from Gwendolyn Brooks, from Cécile Fatiman, from the Black Indigenous Ancestors who created these art forms and with whom allowed us to partake in the pleasure of enjoyment. This is a boast, as a reclamation of sight (Eye), as well as signal to the city and beyond (Run It).
The songs were written on the West, North, South, and East sides of Chicago in descending order of presence. “Time Precious”, and “Capital” were written in Puerto Rico, and were the first songs finished. “Capital II”, was written to provide a second opinion on the beat, as the drums run everlasting like words. Each song has at least 500 words, making them a labyrinth of metaphors, themes, and hidden messages. Each song was written with the intention of Revolution, of Peace, of Love, and of Honor, to our People, the Ancestors, and the Earth. These songs should be taken literally, and received subconsciously. They are Powerful.
