Mcklopedia & Akapellah Display Venezuela's Best and Worst in New Video: Watch
Music has so many meanings and things to express, no matter the style, genre, instruments and voices involved with it. Everything is on the performer, and when the message gets us thinking a lot about what they are singing, the artist wins.
Venezuelan rap band Mcklopedia got that victory with their new single, "Da Lo Mejor De Ti," featuring rapper Akapellah, which combines a "do your best" lesson with a curiously contrasting message criticizing the political and social circumstances in Venezuela.
The new material launched by Ramsés Meneses (voice) and Orestes Gómez (drums) features strong messages reflecting on the current conditions in the country and defending the feelings of Venezuela's citizens.
The band, who has not released new material in two years, are committed to speaking out about issues of social injustice in their country as they display specific musical effects such as a mystical percussion backing.
The clip was recorded in Guadalajara, Mexico, where performers are seen walking on the street with a Venezuelan flag. The video ends with what seems to be a credit but is actually a list of the names of the "falls" in Venezuela in 2017. Watch it here:
