NEW SINGLE “CIRCLES” ADDRESSES THE GUN VIOLENCE

IN CHICAGO AMONG THE YOUTH

Chicago Rapper Gemstones is back and is excited to release his long-awaited full-length debut album Blind Elephant (Xist/Malaco) on May 5.  Displaying deft verbal acrobatics, while serving an honest message, Gemstones felt that this was a perfect time in hip hop to make his official return. On the first single off the album “Circles”, Gemstones unleashes fury, ferocity, and focus on this track holding up a mirror to society, weaving together a pastiche of harsh reality, while calling for change. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.

“Somebody has to do something,” states Gemstones. “You hear about everything else in hip-hop these days. You get the flashy lifestyle, the violence, the sex, and the drugs. What they don’t tell you is your soul goes somewhere when you die. They’re just telling you to live for now. I’m coming with something more substantial.”

Gemstones formally known as Gemini, originally signed to Lupe Fiasco’s 1st & 15th imprint on Atlantic Records, appearing prominently on two iconic gold-selling hip-hop albums—the Grammy Award-winning Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor and Grammy Award-nominated Lupe Fiasco’s The Cool, which Gemstones wrote on.  He toured on bills with Kanye West and Rihanna and collaborated on songs with superstars such as Jay-Z, Drake, and more.Follow me: Getmybuzzup on Twitter | Getmybuzzup on Facebook | Getmybuzzup on Google+ | Getmybuzzup on Tumblr | Getmybuzzup on Linkedin | Getmybuzzup on Pinterest
