Supa Bwe, member of the Hip-Hop trio FIGHT ME alongside artists UG Vavy and Shepard Hues, is yet another fast rising artist to come out of the Windy City and his latest single, “Jubilee,” may be his most candid release to date.
After a fallout with the music group Hurt Everybody, and the strained kinship with friends, family, and the loss of six year relationship with his girlfriend that followed, Supa Bwe locked himself in his room and recorded all of his pent up emotions onto wax with the alluring single, “Jubilee.”
The concept of the touching track is built upon a newfound strength to endure his current life situation, but is fostered from the biblical Jubilee, a year in which forgiveness and liberation was meant to be spread throughout the world with the mercy of God. Here, Supa Bwe shows mercy on himself as he sings sympathetically to his wounded soul, climbing out of the melancholy that life has placed on his shoulders with a dark, shadowed self-production to bring his story to life.
Take a listen and look out for his forthcoming EP, Dead Again 3, July 4.
“This is the year of the “Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy” as declared by Pope Francis, and although I’m not a religious man, I’m familiar with the bible & have always been fascinated with the concept of the Jubilee because of its themes of liberation & forgiveness because those two aspects of human nature are imperative to growth, which I’m dedicating myself to. During Jubilee “slaves and prisoners would be freed, debts would be forgiven, and the mercies of God would be particularly manifest” which is what I feel happening inside of me, right now.” – Supa Bwe
