Katori Walker is a promising young rapper from Pasadena, California, who gained traction last year with the release of his video for "Ormoni," a brutal examination of his brother's murder. Walker has combined that video with visuals for two other songs from his recent Ignorance EP, telling a harrowing story of gang violence and trauma.
