Philadelphia rapper Dice Raw returns today with another politically charged record titled, "Young, Gifted and Black". Shared in honor of Black History Month, Dice starts things off by shouting out a few important black artists from a few different generations, including Jimi Hendrix, Jay Z, and the most recent addition to the lineage, Kendrick Lamar. The soul-sampling beat, complete with some traditionally hard boom bap drums are perfect territory for the Roots-affiliated emcee, but unfortunately it wraps up too quickly. Thankfully, the play button is right there if you want to back it up and start over.
Purgatory for the black man I guess we’ll see
When a poor excuse for a cop aims and shoots me
In the back, because I’m young, gifted and black
An attack, that’s a motherfuckin’ fact
