North America is celebrating Black History Month. The accomplishments and triumphs of those gone before us are enjoying well deserved spotlight which acts as a reminder to the world of our contributions.
The younger generation is participating in an updated way! In addition to acknowledging our forefathers and mothers, they are creating their own accomplishments, and celebrating them, which tomorrow will be recognized as history. One such artisan is Rooftop Rep.
You’ll recall a few weeks ago you received his single “Perfect Nympho” featuring Bryan Ma’Gowan. The song was well received, and its energy was featured on a few stations worldwide. Today, Rep shows off his lyrical versatility in the release of “Blackness.”
The artist shares his views on what it is to be a young black man in America in these times. He uses the genre Trap to poignantly describe a system that in ways is obsessed with a black persons every move. He raps “take a look at my life / feels like I gotta spotlight on me / even with the lights out / somebody can’t take they eyes off me….”
If you are programming for Black History Month, this is a song that will be appreciated by your audience! “Blackness” is attached!
