Listen to Angry Blackmen’s new industrial rap song “Sabotage”

Angry Blackmen, the Chicago experimental rap duo of Quentin Branch and Brian Warren, will release their new album The Legend of ABM, produced by Formants, on January 26 via Deathbomb Arc. They recently released lead single “Stanley Kubrick,” and we’re now premiering second single “Sabotage.” It’s a noisy, abrasive, industrial rap song (and not a Beastie Boys cover) and here’s what Quentin says about it:

“Sabotage” is a critique on our love / hate relationship with capitalism and perspectives on mental health. It’s a track that sounds upbeat and vibrant on the surface but when you dig deeper into the lyrics the song has a bit more nuance. Brian’s verse is more focused on the mental health part, my verse is about the effects of capitalism on art. We even sample American serial killer Aileen Wuornos, who in my opinion, was more sympathetic than a Jeffrey Dahmer or John Wayne Gacy. I don’t think she’s innocent nor do I condone her actions but, if anything, she was neglected by the system and dealt with huge mental health problems.

Check out both singles, the tracklist (including songs featuring Fatboi Sharif, Skech185, Nordra, and Abbie from Mars, and one called “Suicidal Tendencies”), and album artwork below.
