A message from The Black Opera:

Imagine a world where water is the most valuable commodity, even more valued than oil or gold. What would happen if water became so scarce that it caused World Wars? “No Water” puts a spin on this idea & takes a satirical look at water through the lens of an excessive rap culture where splurging on water is the new wave.
