CZAR Josh touches on code-switching with John Givez-assisted ‘IDWCMH’
CZAR Josh teams up with John Givez for his new single IDWCMH (I Don’t Wanna Comb My Hair). Listeners find Josh vulnerable as he shares personal struggles and pain from a strained friendship while Givez croons over a hook that serves as a metaphor for code-switching in the black community. Josh states, “ I want everyone to know that they can be who God has created them to be and not conform to societal pressures. I specifically want people that look like me to know that they do not have to code switch to be accepted and that they are fearfully and wonderfully made.” The Enzo Gran produced track serves as the first music released from CZAR Josh since his debut EP ‘For Your Heart’ which charted on the iTunes Hip Hop charts.
