Chicago based hip-hop MC D-Win has released an EP entitled "Kubrick", and he and his producer, fellow Chicagoan Tek X, describe their collaborative effort thusly:
Given the most recent events that have taken place in America the past year was enough motivation to release the project. Kubrick is a concept album that explores current issues in America; racism, police brutality, and manipulation of the media. The EP is titled after legendary- and often labeled at times controversial -film director Stanley Kubrick. The album was inspired by Kubrick’s methods, which drew you in, but unexpectedly gave you a message from something you wouldn’t expect. The single ‘ Walking On Water” was released last week along with a solid visual created by Nick Mecca of Visual Mecca. The single is a glimpse into the overall message of Kubrick EP. The project is provocative and offers listeners an honest point of view of what it’s like to be young and black in America in 2015. The release of the album was created with the hopes to enlighten and inspire those who are seeking a shift in the right direction.
I gave it a listen, purely out of curiosity. Aside from a couple of sampled bits from a Kubrick documentary, I don't see the connection. Not bad I guess, if you're into this kind of music. It's not my cup of tea, personally, but I do like the album artwork.
