Off of ‘Deeply Rooted’, Sugi Dakks offers ‘Not The Only One’. An intense fervent of emotions and descriptive accounts, the poetry depicted in spoken word, it pacifies none as it rolls through like a storm.
Describing the new EP, Sugi said: “‘Deeply Rooted’ is an EP that explores my personal identity, the identity of others, and how we come to shape our identities. When it comes to racism, self-hatred, prejudice, bias, discrimination, and all forms of inequality, all of these are deeply ingrained in our society and deeply ingrained in most everyones personal story. Through this EP, I was able to share my story of how I viewed myself, how it differed from the viewpoints of my peers and the general society, and how bigotry is such a destructive engine that ruins people’s lives, livelihood, and self-worth.”
Sugi Dakks is the work of Kyle Donald. A college graduate in Jazz Piano and Cuspi National Slam Poetry finalist, his dual interests in poetry and music merged into the jazz-tinged hip-hop thrusts with ambience, and axe grinding sharpness.
