"I am not black but I wanted to address something about the current situation without being that white guy telling black folks what to do. So instead I decided to address the people who are just distracting from the main issues.
Like most white people I have experienced prejudice in some form so I can empathise to a point but will never totally understand what black people all around the world experience daily and have gone through collectively for over 400 years.
The response to #blacklivesmatter is often 'All Lives Matter'. Although often meant in a good way it is counterproductive to #blacklivesmatter as it shifts the focus away from the main issue..
To break it down:
Bob sits down at the dinner table.
Everyone gets a plate of food apart from Bob.
Bob says "Bob deserves food".
Everyone at the table responds with "Everyone deserves food." and carries on eating.
Although Everyone Deserves Food is a true statement it does nothing to actually rectify the fact...
BOB HAS NO FOOD!!
This track is a message and response to the All Lives Matter people who need to learn. And the ones who know exactly what they are doing who need to just STFU."
The single, titled “Dangerous,”
features Timbo King & DJ King Shiloh. It was released to the public
on April 17th along with a music video on a variety of platforms,

About Zu Ninjaz:
Zu Ninjaz, a Wu-Tang affiliate, is a group of music artists that started in the classic days of hip-hop and rap music. They couple raw intellectual lyrics with a traditional east coast sound. Although they each possess their own unique image and rhyming style, they blend their talents seamlessly. Originally, the group was branded by Ol’ Dirty Bastard (ODB). After his passing, they worked with Brooklyn Zu to perform an ODB tribute song. Since then, Zu Ninjaz has been creating impressive music that appeals to a variety of music lovers beyond audiences who only listen to traditional hip-hop and rap.

Sirreal believes in a world where connection can be the antidote to
death. For him, what drives connection is music. Music is the medicine
that has been around for longer than any of the prescribed vaccines,
anti depressants or painkillers that we see today. Rhythm is in our
soul, our heartbeat and everything around us.
What inspires Sirreal the most is the ability to help people feel
less alone through the messages they can relate to within his art.
While growing up he spent his time listening to Jimi Hendrix,
Stevie Ray Vaughn, Bob Marley, Led Zeppelin, Run DMC, Eric B and Rakim,
Big Daddy Kane and of course his moms eclectic mix of Heart, Pat
Benatar, AC/DC and Metallica. On his own he discovered Nirvana, Pearl
Jam, Deftones, Tool, Eminem, Chali 2na and many other influences that
shaped his perception of art.
Hailing from Nanaimo BC Canada he has been
working with his community by going to schools and talking to youth
about suicide prevention, resilience and getting through hard times with
art for 6 years. In that time he has spoken to over 10,000 youth.
Losing his brother, father and 2 best friends to suicide, Sirreal
knows the effect that it can have on families, communities and those
left behind. He wants his message to make a difference and let people
know that they are not alone with their struggles. He has made it his
mission to give people the medicine of music. He has taken his
experiences and turned his broken pieces into art.
“I want to bring my message of music as medicine to the
world, one invisible person at a time. With currently working on 2 new
albums, The Blue and The Red albums. The Pills on the front cover
represent the different medicines we need depending on our mental health
status at the time. We all have that song we listen to when we are sad
and need to feel uplifted. And also have songs for when we just want to
let it all out and have fun.
I have made 2 pieces of art that cover the
full spectrum of those emotions. My hope is to help everyone feel less
alone and invisible; only then can we start to combat this epidemic of
depression, loneliness and suicide. I stand ready to fight for those who
don’t have the strength currently to fight for themselves.”
"My father was raised on the beautiful islands of the Bahamas. Due to my father’s talents being a multi-instrumentalist and singer; the Bohemian people gifted him with the name Maestro. Once my pops realized my musical ability, his legacy was passed on to me. To diversify the both of us, I added the number 31; which is his favorite number.
I am originally from New Haven, Connecticut. Also, I spent some time in Fayetteville, North Carolina! Shout out to my 910 family! My musical abilities was cultivated in Atlanta, GA."
