Abena

(4 plays) | (0 fans)

Guerin says of the single: "Abena is a song for my little sister telling her that she'll do great in this world and that she'll outshine all of the everyday challenges that come with being Black. “Abena” is the lead single for an album I am releasing in September called The Saga III — completing a trilogy of albums that follows my growth from a 17-year old 10th-grade student until being 21 years old at college graduation from The New School. Aside from a few features, I played all the instruments myself and produced and mixed by myself in my bedroom. "

This Is America
by Childish Gambino
(167 plays) | (1 fan)

Frank Guan analyzes the lyrics of “This Is America,” which draw heavily on trap music, a gritty rap subgenre with its origins in Atlanta. “The incongruousness of Glover, raised middle-class and a NYU graduate, bragging about his Mexican drug supplier and threatening to have you gunned down, is intentional,” he writes. “It’s a tribute to the cultural dominance of trap music and a reflection on the ludicrous social logic that made the environment from which trap emerges, the logic where money makes the man, and every black man is a criminal.”: https://www.vulture.com/2018/05/what-it-means-when-childish-gambino-says-this-is-america.html ---- Find our list of anti-racist resources and funds here: https://www.kexp.org/anti-racist-and-social-justice-resources/
