Jan 02, 2021, 21:52pm EST — Hip Hop artist, Bail Fund and Mutual Aid organizer, Lil Guillotine, releases a track inspired by the movement against police brutality, with hopes of inspiring people towards police abolition.
Lil Guillotine, known for his work with the Free The 350 Bail Fund and support for the recent movement for Black Lives, is an anarchist, abolitionist, hip hop artist, workplace organizer, father and involved community member from Madison Wisconsin and is known for “fight[ing] the power through sharply worded music.”
In his new single, “Ignition,” Lil Guillotine takes up ideas popularized by the uprisings of 2020. On the chopping block are whiteness, its social and cultural positionality in relation to Blackness and abolition of police. He takes these up while attempting to inspire individuals to action to achieve the aspirations of the movement that was brought to life by an immediate need to defend Black lives from state sanctioned violence and culminated in the largest uprisings this country has seen, by some metrics, ever.
