Los Angeles emcee Dumbfoundead partners with The Fader to debut his brand new gorilla style music video “Harambe.” With hard-hitting production by Getter, Dumbfoundead delves into the fatal shooting of Harambe to address social injustice and the consequential widespread paranoia. “Harambe” will be included in Dumbfoundead’s We Might Die mixtape due out later this year.
Dumbfoundead explains to The Fader, “I linked up with Getter to work on my next mixtape – We Might Die. This was around the time the gorilla shooting happened and we came up with “Harambe.” I felt that this was the energy in the world during that time that I needed to address.”
Earlier this summer, the Korean-American pioneer Dumbfoundead fiercely confronted Hollywood’s offensive stereotypes with his #1 trending lead single “Safe.” Superimposing his own face over the faces of white actors of iconic films, Dumbfoundead spotlights the Asian American narrative and anti-whitewashing anthem that was featured on the homepage of CNN, The Los Angeles Times and Al Jazeera.
