My reason for writing “Circles” was to bring more awareness of black on black crime in our communities. Knowing I can’t change the world but if I reach one my job is done.
Gemstones is back! Here’s the first release of new music since he went into the studio for his Xist Music debut album and he makes a statement with “Circles”. As he says above, he tackles black on black crime with the song and video, and while we’ve certainly seen a few Chicago artists take their hand at the topic lately, Gem takes it to another level.
To describe how would spoil the video, which takes a turn about halfway through. In usual Gemstones fashion, it takes just one listen to be engaged into his fast-pace storytelling and follow along as things escalate after the set-up. Job well done across the board and a great first preview of Blind Elephant, set for a February 24th, 2015 release!
