Back in June, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. Immediately afterwards, Brits were googling, "What is the E.U.?" "What happens when you leave the E.U.?"

Unsurprisingly, many have pushed back against the vote and Britain's incoming leadership who led the Brexit campaign. One of those opposition voices is Akala, a BAFTA and MOBO award-winning UK hip-hop artist.
