Every year on April 24th, millions of Armenians and non-Armenians come together around the world for Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day.
In 2013, Armenian-American emcee R-Mean shared “Open Wounds” to raise awareness to the atrocities committed by the Ottoman Empire (modern day Turkey) in 1915 in an attempt to annihilate the Armenian people, expressing the despair and sadness of what his ancestors faced in their fight to survive.
Four years later, he’s back with a sequel. Reconnecting with The Game, who shares a similar ancestral past, the two artists intend to use music as the powerful voice of the people to educate the world and raise awareness about all crimes against humanity, in an attempt to heal the open wounds of all those affected around the world.
Throw up a fist for justice and press play.
“Open Wounds X” also marks the 17th installment of R-Mean’s ongoing #MeanMondays series, where the LA rapper is going for 52 in a row. Last week, he shared “Save Me” with Kyle Christopher, which we missed out on posting.
