Malcolm London is a modern day renassance man. The poet/activist/rapper has been on the scene as an artist using the arts to invoke change, starting with his series of open mike nights for the youth in Chicago.
Just like fellow Chicagoan and close pal Chance the Rapper, London not only does great works in the community, but in the studio as well.
With that, Malcolm has released a new album titled OPIA in which he features other Chicago greats like Vic Mensa, Jamila Woods, and Donnie Trumpet.
London says this project is a peak into the soul of a stranger- both awkward yet intriguing:
“Ever awkwardly catch eye contact with someone you don’t know for more than five seconds walking down the street, on the train, or at a party from across the room? How intrusive it may feel to have someone staring you directly in the eye & yet simultaneously how vulnerable it feels like someone can see into your soul”
