Fresno rapper Fashawn dropped a new single today and it’s politically charged – as is fitting the times.
The track, produced Hecktik and Jukebawks, is called “Mother Amerikkka,” and is a brutal look at the inner conflict the rapper feels; on one hand, loving the country that birthed him and gave him the will (and want) for success, while condemning those in power and the treatment of people of color within it borders.
“Somebody, anybody, what’s the worth of a black life? Or even a brown one?” Fashawns raps, before references to a grieving mother and a list of those recently killed by police.
The single comes as Fashawn announced he will be releasing a new EP and is currently working on “Millenia,” the follow-up to last year’s “The Ecology.”
