Nooky's "BLACK FUTURE" Is An Inspiring Trap Anthem
The Bad Apples signee has dropped the perfect NAIDOC anthem.
Yuin rapper Nooky has released his new single and video "BLACK FUTURE" a raging trap anthem designed to inspire future generations of First Nations people around the country. Described by Nooky's label Bad Apples Music (BAM) as a "perfect NAIDOC anthem", "BLACK FUTURE" is a stand-alone single released to commemorate this year's NAIDOC week. "This song is about black excellence," says Nooky of the track, "about the feats we've achieved in the past [as well as] what we're doing now and what we're about to do."
According to Nooky, the song also "references 3 prominent black figures who are killing it in their fields: Jimmy Little, Patty Mills and Tai Tuivasa. The song is about having the heart to stand for something and having the gurras [Yuin (Dhurga) word for nuts] to fight for it.”
Nooky will also be releasing his debut album later this year on Bad Apples. To celebrate the release of "BLACK FUTURE", he's also released a series of t-shirts, featured in the song's music video. We're thrilled to be premiering "BLACK FUTURE" today:
