Inspired by the historical events depicted in the motion picture “Birth of a Nation”, Bishop The Overseer releases the 4th single from his upcoming album “Nation of Immigrants.”
Produced by Tone Jonez, “Battle Cry” contains a controversial lyric anomaly and exemplary music performance by Bishop the Overseer depicting past and present injustices in the United States. Consisting of over 40 individual elements in its creative development, “Battle Cry” masterfully embodies the theme of revolution that inspires the oppressed to fight for change.
Almost 4 years in the making, Verse 1 artfully articulates Nat Turner’s slave rebellion in August 1831. Verse 2 recalls the events leading up to and during the American Civil War. “Battle Cry” carefully follows a timeline of historical events pre/post-Civil War in the ongoing fight for justice, equality and civil rights as contained within the upcoming album “Nation of Immigrants.”
