Pawz One’s Persona Non Grata project is a “statement to [his] surroundings and the music business.” On “Bad News,” the artist does exactly that. Pawz brings new light to the way those in power attempt to strip marginalized people of chances to advance and their rights, from jail time to the concept of the government sending drugs into BIPOC neighborhoods. On top of that, the brother speaks on the flukiness and cluelessness the music industry both perpetuates and is a victim of as well. All in all? This is a revolutionary track with conscious bars and a wit to it that’s not usually seen in your conscious hip-hop. Check it out below and support dope music in all its forms.
