NYC emcee Deca shares his new animated video “Mammon’s Mantra” off his new album The Way Through.
While Mammon is often equated with Satan and all things evil, most notably popularized by Milton, according to the rapper, the imagery and song “Mammon’s Mantra” is “about manipulation and the cultural symptoms of a deep psychological sickness at a time when the world is equal parts 1984 and Brave New world,” explains Deca. “In Brave New World it was all distractions, antidepressants, mindless entertainment, and carnality. In 1984 big brother put a boot on the neck of anyone or anything that posed a real threat to the system and status quo. I think the scales are pretty balanced between those two poles right now.”
