After jumping on Dr. Dre's "Still Dre" instrumental for last weeks Mean Mondays, R-Mean returns with a heavy new track "Open Wounds X." This cut is a revamped version of a previously released track, and this "Armenian Genocide Anthem" is a dark reflection on the atrocities Mean's people have suffered. The beat is kicked up a notch on this version, and fans of underground political rap will most definitely feel this. Lyrically, Mean does not shy away from the brutality, painting a visceral picture of the horrors committed by the Ottoman empire in 1915.
I am a victim - a victim of time
Victimized by the victory of viciousness the system revised
They say a century's passed - nothing can bring them to life
I say our memories last - at least admit to your crimes
I try to look these little kids in their eyes
As they're watching their mother's demise
