Shortly after announcing the upcoming release of his new album, Mailbox Money, Nipsey Hussle dropped the Mike & Keys and 1500 or Nothin’ produced 50 Niggaz. The track touches on the recent social injustices that people are finally starting to wake up to. But, if you’ve been studying your Black History, you already know that it’s nothing new. The internet and social media are just acting as catalysts for change.
It’s cool to see artists taking a stance on social issues like they back in the day (think Public Enemy & James Brown) instead of glorifying strippers, trap life and killing each other for idiotic reasons though. I could go on and on, but I’ll spare you (today)… I will be picking up a copy of Mailbox Money when it drops on the 20th though. #ProudToPay
