Cashus King and Blu share vibrant single “Black Israelis (The New World)”

Los Angeles’ Cashus King and Blu have shared a new single called “Black Israelis (The New World)”, produced by clouded slum. “Black Israelis (The New World)” makes for a refreshing listening experience, containing immersive, atmospheric production and lyrically expansive, vibrant verses from King and Blu. Appearing on King’s upcoming album The W.O.W. (The Weight of Wind), “Black Israelis (The New World)” has us excited to hear the entirety of the project.

“Black Israelis (The New World)” begins with lush samples that blend smoothly with airy guitars, as buttery percussion and rich bass create an infectious and organic groove. King and Blu come through with some flexible rhyme schemes and detailed, powerful verses, showcasing their sharp songwriting and engaging flows.

King says of the single’s subject matter, “in a way, I consider myself a Black Israeli and a Black Palestinian, conceptually. Black Israelis, not to be confused with Black Israelites, is a metaphor for overcoming hardship and adversity. Both the Palestinians and the Jewish people (although not all Israelis are Jewish) have been historically persecuted, and like the Blacks of America, they thrive on. Blu and I represent the struggle of artistry, the struggle of blackness, and the struggle of humanity”.

“Black Israelis (The New World)” will appear on King’s new album The W.O.W. (The Weight of Wind), releasing June 17.
