Aasha Marie – WYWS
Aasha Marie dropped a music video for the single “WYWS” (While You Were Sleeping).
She describes the turbulent landscape of her hometown Chicago by channelling her angst and emotions into captivating rap verses. Speaking to two camps; the gang member enthralled by violence and the local church member handling God’s business.
“The church today is present but are they a presence? I’m speaking from my experience growing up in Chicago that has a thriving gang culture and still does but in that, lovingly challenging the churches in these neighbourhoods in Chicago and beyond—to be faithful gospel proclaimers amidst a dying world,” she said.
