Anon Artist NEO 10Y Criticizes American Culture in ‘The Kid That Killed Trump’

+

Political trip-hop artist NEO 10Y first infiltrated the Internet with his charged single, “AMERIKKKA,” which took down Republican hopeful Donald Trump using lyrics like, “All your dreams made out of hate,” and, “waiting for your lies to seal your swollen fate,” over dark, electronic production. The British QPOC artist—still anonymous today—created this project as a pro-freedom, non-violent means to steer Americans away from voting Trump come November.

In order to successfully do so, NEO 10Y created a three-part film that centers on deleting or “killing” Trump from the public consciousness entirely, called NEO 10Y v. NIHIL: The Kid That Killed Trump. The film was captured on the night of the first presidential debate (Sept. 26) and features three NEO 10Y tracks—”AMERIKKKA,” about realizing the errors of our ways; “JANIS,” about never giving up; and, “WILD WEST” about the future and disconnecting in order to connect.

“2016 has already taken human kind on an arguably apocalyptic turn inciting a race war, a class war, hatred and the marginalization of under-represented communities,” NEO 10Y wrote on Facebook. “Not to mention the grave death toll through violence through ignorance and hatred—all stemming from the dangerous mindset of one particular figure head […] As a British artist who experienced the repercussions of Brexit firsthand, I have spent the last three months creating in America to urge you to be vocal and vote for peace —to eliminate the hatred, fear-mongering, xenophobia, misogyny, transphobia, division, racism that this demon is breeding.”



The Kid That Killed Trump features an “Adderall Forlorn” Mickey Mouse, as a symbol of the American public that’s longtime chosen to ignore its own history. “Mickey isn’t a pure symbol,” NEO 10Y told BULLETT. “He’s the creation of an anti-semitic man, Disney, that has been put on a pedestal of American culture.” In the video, the British disruptive artist wears an oversized Mickey head, while getting anally penetrated by a faceless figure in a Trump mask—commentary on the country’s dirty past, though he’s confident “we all still have it in us to destroy the evil and progress come November 8.”

Though it’s inevitably polarizing, NEO 10Y’s film has positive intentions, encouraging viewers to check their privilege and learn the true history of America—a country first founded on racism and slavery. The anon artist wants these conversations to provoke change and inspire the public to “support the minorities who are being murdered on the streets every single day.” But of course, when Trump gets targeted in such a fierce way, the inevitable supporter emerges, as exhibited in the hateful email, below, which NEO 10Y shared exclusively with BULLETT:
