"Hands Up" comes after the recent "Last Time" and is more energetic than the previous piece. This one expresses Hydroponikz's frustration, as an immigrant in the US, with the discriminatory treatment of those citizens that helped to shape the cultural diversity of our society. He shares:
The track aims to inspire oppressed humans to not be fooled by the constructs of corrupt government and to shed light on the criminalization of race, creed, and gender identity to conceal white-collar lawlessness. While the mainstream media paints the civil rights movement to be a summer trend, "Hands Up" serves as a reminder that this is a fight that has lasted, and may last, several lifetimes.
The track is part of their upcoming joint album NY2NZ, out via Below System Records.
