    The “Blood of the Fang” video is inspired by a photo of Huey Newton — co-founder of The Black Panther Party for Self-Defense — hand-cuffed to a hospital gurney while being treated for a gunshot wound in the abdomen after a gun battle with Oakland police in October 1967. The song is built around a sample from Sam Waymon’s score to the 1973 experimental vampire film Ganja & Hess. Daveed Diggs’s lyrics conjure an alternate history of black political struggle in the 1960s and 70s, name-dropping radical activists and reimagining them as a pantheon of undead superheroes fighting against systems of oppression. https://bit.ly/32SkMWN

    "The new single “Blood Of The Fang” is built around a sample of Sam Waymon’s score for Ganja & Hess, a 1973 experimental horror film about a black anthropologist who encounters ancient African vampires. (Spike Lee remade it in 2014 as Da Sweet Blood of Jesus.) The song in the sample lays out the movie’s whole mythology, and Daveed Diggs uses it as a jumping-off point, exploring America’s history of killing and victimizing its militant black leaders."
