A song that’s equally about unity as it is about celebrating differences in experiences and backgrounds, Walt Miguel’s “We’re Here” sounds like a mix between Nirvana and Kid Cudi. The basis of the track stems from Miguel’s own upbringing as a person of color in Finland. Specifically, he speaks on his early days as a Nicaraguan -Finnish youth. He takes that experience and places it under a microscope while still believing in himself and letting it be known that his difference in upbringing or ethnicity isn’t something that should be frowned upon.
Instead, Miguel knows that his uniqueness isn’t a demerit but is instead something to be proud of and something that others try to emulate. I dealt with something similar, on a smaller scale, when I went to college. I was surrounded by non-Black POCs and white students who’d never been to Baltimore, nor been involved in hip-hop as much as I was. I think that’s part of the reason why I feel this track that much more. Check it out and support dope music in all its forms.
