“THEY PUT THEIR BOOTS ON OUR GROUND, I PUT MY ROOTS IN THEIR GROUND I PUT MY TRUTH IN THIS SOUND I SPIT MY TRUTH AND IT’S BROWN”.
Riz Ahmed is a music artist, storyteller, actor and activist. He is the first Muslim to win an acting Emmy for his lead role in HBO’s The Night Of and also starred in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Venom, Four Lions, and Nightcrawler.
As a musician, he came up in the London music scene as a rap battle champion, going on to write and perform both as a solo artist and with Swet Shop Boys. His provocative solo release, Post 9/11 Blues, was banned before a viral groundswell forced it into radio. The Swet Shop Boys’ album, Cashmere, toured to sold-out crowds from Coachella to NYC’s Webster Hall. In a nod to their cultural impact, protestors against Trump’s “muslim ban” at Los Angeles International Airport protest were heard chanting their lyrics. In 2018, his release of “Mogambo,” a swaggering survival anthem for our fraught times, was followed by a series of incendiary, sold-out live shows in the US and UK.
