The ongoing protests across America have undoubtedly raised awareness surrounding the deaths of countless African-Americans who've died at the hands of law enforcement and racism. We've seen many prominent artists join their communities at the front line of the protests with several of them releasing new music reflecting the current issues everyone is facing.
Icewear Vezzo released an incredibly powerful single last week after joining the protests. With an accompanying video that highlights the protests across America, as well as the one in Detroit, he details the pain and fear of being a Black American and simply wanting the right to live.
"God placed it on my heart to make the song and video," Vezzo told Free Press Detroit. "I wanted to bring light to the issues going on in America, and to let people know that Black people aren't happy with them."
Peep the song.
Fuck no, I'm not alright, don't even feel fine
Hands up, they got us cuffed and we still
They lock us up and take our life, that's the real crime
I'm still thinkin' 'bout Trayvon mama still cryin'
