Hieroglyphics and Souls of Mischief Mc/Producer Phesto Dee Presents Infrared Rum! 11 insanely innovative tracks all produced, arranged and performed by Phesto Dee.

Stream the project below on the Hieroglyphics Soundcloud!
Purchase here:

Infrared: Light radiation invisible to the naked eye. 

Rum: Alcohol used as a primary medium of exchange for slaves in the triangular trade routes during the 16th through 19th Centuries. (Red Rum; the word Murder inverted)

Infrared light in the electromagnetic field exists but we cannot see it with our own eyes. Here it is offered as a metaphor for the clandestine or the disguised. Rum in this context is a metaphor for slavery and colonialism by the minority who control the masses. Exterminate the invisible chains on your brain,open up the third eye, and tune in to Infrared Rum!
