Genesis Blu, native Houstonian and self-proclaimed Raptivist, was named “The Blue Haired Matron” of hip hop by Texas Monthly. Genesis tabled her psychotherapy Ph.D for a career in music and advocacy. The song “Soul,” featuring Kam Franklin of the critically acclaimed band, The Suffers, confronts America’s inconsistencies in supporting causes that only benefit the individual and not the greater good. The song is accompanied by a powerful music video highlighting the controversy surrounding a facility scheduled to become a new child detention center in Houston, Texas. Genesis makes a call to action for unity and solidarity with the hashtag #Whereisyoursoul?
