Che Lingo: My Block
Lingo calls himself the “wizard of Wandsworth”, which suggests a sense of humour about his south London ends.
His potent single My Block, takes aim at the serious matter of police brutality, like a UK answer to Kendrick Lamar’s Alright.
This project struck two chords, not only was it highly creative as a music video it was also a piece that carried sentiment and cause.
The song touches on what he perceives as the injustice surrounding his friend Julian Cole, who was left brain damaged by police after an incident at a nightclub in Bedfordshire in 2013.
The officers involved faced no criminal charges, while, according to Lingo, he has friends “who have been to jail for much less”.
