With the war in Europe as backdrop and the shadow of regime changes sweeping across Africa, comes the new single War Specialist; a bold and gritty expression of human disdain for those with little to no regard for life. It is the latest release from Gold Recording Artist Melekel, which also appears on his most anticipated upcoming sixth studio album, Ancient Legacy.
War Specialist, the new single, is a statement on social commentary centered around the idea of the propagation of characters typically involved in an armed conflict. Similarly, as in a movie or television production; it brings to light the likelihood of a guru, expert or consultant guiding the cast from behind the scenes.
The song is introduced with the affirmative defensive statement: "Okay, seems like all you know is war," contextually stemming from current events rather than a historical analysis of political science. It's a glimpse into the mind of a generational artist, with a message that will undoubtedly transcend time and space.
