Common hat sein neues Video zu “Black America Again” featuring Stevie Wonder veröffentlicht. Der Song ist gleichzeitig der Titeltrack seines neuen Albums. Common thematisiert in “Black America Again” die tödliche Polizeigewalt gegen Schwarze in Nordamerika.
The video’s arrival is timely and appropriate, as the recent killings of Terence Crutcher and Keith Lamont Scott — along with many other deaths — continue to plague black communities. “Black children, they childhood stole from them, robbed of our names and our language, stole again” the Chicago native raps. Holding nothing back, Common continues to vent: “I know that black lives matter and they matter to us, these are the things we gotta discuss. The new plantation, mass incarceration, Instead of educate, they’d rather convict the kids.”
“Black America Again” is the title track of Common’s album titled, “Black America Again”. Produced by Karriem Riggins and Robert Glasper Featuring Stevie Wonder, Esperanza Spalding on bass,Scratches by J Rock, Strings by Patrick Warren and ad libs Chuck D and MC Lyte
