From the crooner that had all of us singing the lyrics to "Redbone". . . "Stay Woke, Niggas Creepin" comes a new tune to get stuck in your head for the summer.
"This is America" is satyrical in it's call for the Black man to "get yo money" and love all things that appear prosperous even when the world is falling apart around you.
Watch the video then catch me afterwards.
Did y'all catch the SZA cameo? I did!
This video is heavy and I think I need to watch it again to fully understand what he's trying to say. What's your take?
I went on Twitter to see what other folks were saying about the video because I KNEW I had missed something significant. As it turns out, I missed a lot!
Here's the tweet that sent me down the "rabbit hole".
And then this one. . .
Protect and cherish our guns, screw your dead. . . dang. I'm glad I stayed with the song/video enough to look further into it and not just be enamored with what was in front of me. The truth is always just under the surface.
