Brasstracks is the production duo who made Chance the Rapper's "No Problem." In other words, they are very talented. They put their soulful, trumpet-driven sound on display once more on "Melanin Man," the standout track of their recently released EP Good Love.
A collaboration between Brasstracks and Masego, "Melanin Man" frames dark skin as a superpower. "I want to promote self-love in efforts to heal the hate. Melanin is the shine in us all and that's why it's not just for my people but all people," Masego told The Fader. "This song is much greater than us so I'm thankful for what God will do with it. "
