Over a soulful R&B sample, Flash E Williams speaks on the plight of Black people, the drug epidemic and politics all at once. That’s really all I can say about this one without spoiling the track for you. Over the course of two minutes, Williams employs a punchy flow through which he hammers home each point with precision. From his own upbringing to the era of Jim Crow to politicians having one thing on their minds, Williams, well, keeps it simple while talking about complex situations.
Thankfully, he doesn’t paint everything as a black and white good and bad scenario. There’re muted shades of grey throughout the song and the lyrics, shades that paint a more-complete picture than just saying “this is good, that is bad.” I love this one, mainly because the simple sample keeps you engaged with his rhymes. If the beat was a bit more complex, I feel like the emotions may’ve switched up and not been as potent. Check out the track below and support dope music in all its forms.
