    The first visual off of Kapi-Ku's new album "Own The Night"
    Directed by: T. Garcia
    Produced by: The KNCT

    While the early 90s often brings memories of the Golden era of Hip+Hop, it was also a time of unrest. The L.A. riots grabbed the national spotlight, but those in New York remember the riots in Crown Heights and Washington Heights in the summers of '91 and '92 respectively. This was the world in Kapi-Ku's formative years.
    'Own The Night' was created in the midst of the highly publicized events of police brutality that went on in Ferguson, New York, Baltimore, Chicago, and all over the U.S.
    The instrumentals by production crew, The KNCT, are heavy and evoke the tension of the times. Kapi goes way deeper than 'f--- the police', 'f--- the system', and lyrical-miracle punchline raps. Every track tells a story or stays within the overall theme of the project, a dreamer navigating thru social injustices and survival. So there's no token love song, there's no party track, this is rebel music.
    'Own The Night' is a strategic rebellion in sonic Hip+Hop form, which progresses from the problems, to the struggle, to solutions, and what others usually fail to include, a vision of freedom.
