Freshly Picked: Yons - "Civil Rights"

Meet the artist formerly known as Eons D, now simplified to Yons; one of the most intricate wordsmiths that the emerging artist community has to offer. His writing style shares a unique perspective that mixes cynicism, a strong background in the Christian community that recently became a thing of the past, and an inherent sense of rebellion from the systems of society. He comes across as a very studied individual seeking answers in a world where absolute truth seems to be the only thing out of reach. 

"Civil Rights" is so soulful, and a powerful offering to give some insight into why his perspective has shifted over the past couple of years. A standout line in the song is "won't let my history bury me, 'cause I ain't doing this just for me." You can tell that Yons carries the struggles and lineage of the black experience and chooses to wear it on his sleeve. It's a refreshing take. He doesn't sound angry or disarrayed. He's a man frankly stating how he feels and seems to hope that there's more people out there that can identify with his thoughts. 

We feel you, brother. Keep sharing your story.
