Anye Elite Liberates With New Single "Picture Me Free"
Although Elite's material normally includes LGBT themes, “Picture Me Free” takes it one step further by addressing economic and social issues beyond sexuality.
Openly gay rapper Anye Elite is taking a bold stance with his new single “Picture Me Free”, an ode to black liberation and the negative effects of capitalism. This is Elite's first release in two years, and he brings a powerful message to the table. In the song, he samples the "Star Spangled Banner" and alludes to the pressures of living in a capitalistic society.
Although Elite's material normally includes LGBT themes, “Picture Me Free” takes it one step further by addressing economic and social issues beyond sexuality. Through his lyrics, Anye paints a vivid picture of what it means to be black in America today and encourages listeners to fight oppression through self-expression. He wants people to know that they can take control of their own destiny and create their own path.
"This is where we at now. People not sure what we're looking for . It used to be simple steady job and a house at the shore. Now it's the clout they got me too, I ain't no lame, just trying to maintain nah I ain't staving I'm still in the game"
Elite speaks openly about his struggles being an openly gay artist, but with “Picture Me Free” he is making sure that everyone knows that this isn't just about him; it's about creating a movement for change. He wants to use his platform not just for entertainment but also for political advocacy. He hopes that this song will help people understand how important it is for us all to stand together against injustice and inequality.
