UNLOCK THE SYSTEM
New Release
Invasion Day | Day of Mourning | Survival Day | Aboriginal Sovereignty Day |
26 January has circuited another year. A day of commemoration for our people. Acknowledging the loss of our sovereign rights to land, loss of family, loss of the right to practice our culture. J-MILLA has released his new track Unlock the System to raise awareness that black lives matter.

"I had only just left Yuendumu 2 weeks prior to the "alleged" murder. The reason Unlock the System came to me was because when I heard the news about the shooting I felt shocked and upset for the Walker family and community. I felt an automatic connection with brutha-boy Walker as he was a young Aboriginal male just like me. I was extremely shocked that this incident wasn’t all over national news considering someone was shot down dead in his own bedroom in the middle of the night by a police officer. I am a rapper born and bred in Darwin and have some followers from the community of Yuendumu, and writing this song was a way I could express my feelings towards the situation and to also stand up and be another voice for both Yuendumu and the Walker family" says J-MILLA.

Proceeds from Unlock The System will go to the Walker Family to assist with travel costs to Alice Springs, so they can attend the court hearings in April.
