Those who believe that most music is missing definitive lyrical meaning these days will want to take a listen to Bobby Sessions' latest track "Like Me." The Texas emcee is talking to anybody who looks like him on the song, speaking out about the mistreatment of black people in America. Noting that, these days, black people have become "reduced to hashtags," Sessions says that he will continue to speak out about injustice and will use his platform to explore problems that negatively affect people like him around the world.
Using experimental mixing techniques on his vocals with heavy distortion at times, Sessions' message can be felt and heard the entire song as his stance is clear as day.
500 years later no crime when they shot us
Baby momma knocked up, baby daddy locked up
Running on the block cause I'm getting sick of master
When I'm from n---as ain't thinking 'bout a Masters
