Provocative music artist & current NFL 49ner star player Antone Exum Jr to discuss his upcoming single “Officer Kaepernick.” This new single is an artistic expression about the excessive and brutal force sometimes displayed by police officers and government officials. As a songwriter, singer, and producer, EXUM mixes hip hop, post-punk, and electronic elements in vibrantly creative and powerful ways, and strives to be an inspirational force of positivity on both the field and in the recording studio. He is equally inspired by Kanye West, Bloc Party, Kid Cudi, Trent Reznor, and TV On The Radio.
In anticipation of introducing “Officer Kaepernick” to the world later this week on iTunes and Spotify, EXUM shares that “I am aware and thankful that there are officers in our country that do an amazing job serving for the greater good. I’m also aware that there are injustices in the hands of those who abuse their responsibilities, stemming from places of negativity and fear. Moving forward, I hope this song can open the hearts of the abusers, and console the spirits of the abused. Let’s all learn to love first.”
According to EXUM he named the song Officer Kaepernick “because the injustices I’m talking about in the song are the reason Kaepernick took a knee. It’s one of the reasons he isn’t playing anymore, and if his followers made music about how they felt, it would sound something like this.”
EXUM’s music is destined to distinguish him as one of the most interesting and creative forces in the NFL, and we look forward to working with you to exclusively debut the new track. A professional NFL star player over the last 6 years, EXUM is currently in training camp with the San Francisco 49ers gearing up for the upcoming season, and he is available for a phone interview to discuss his new music, inspiration, and songwriting journey.
