Black is an alternative Hip-Hop music album by Afro-Centrick Quo. Written from the conception of “Black” as a form of racial deviation from other races within the realms of humanity.

It is a narrative that engages the audience in the writer’s self-introspective dialogue on his journey to self-discovery while capturing and articulating burning and controversial subjects within the South African status quo over the past five years. The narrative in the Black journey is embodied through the writer’s thoughts, experiences, encounters and discoveries relative to the black community. Easily becoming an echo of the black community’s realities in the global society.
