Killer Mike Is Still "Burn"-ing Over the Oscar Grant Shooting
Spitting over bluesy, bouncy, live instrumentation that samples Funkadelic ("You and Your Folks, Me and My Folks"), Killer Mike uses his supreme rhyming talents and the Oakland shooting to attack injustice against the black community from all angles on a new song, "Burn." He touches on discrimination, institutional racism, and hypocrisy as they pertain to religion, law enforcement, schools, and the job market. Essentially, Killer Mike calls for more public action to these problems.
And maaaaaaybe stockpiling guns and burning everything down isn't a great move? But channeling some of that anger isn't the worst idea, either. Plus, it's sorta good to know that people haven't pushed this sad story into the recesses of their mind to be forgotten.
