In 2016 as a “black” person, did you ever imagine that you would have to partake in a movement called “Black Lives Matter”? Just the very thought of this idea makes my skin crawl and my stomach flip.
These killings and blatant disregard for our lives isn’t going to stop unless influential people and music artists like Adam Reverie step up and spit from the heart. On his latest record titled ‘Wanna Be A Nigga’ produced by JXHNSCXTT, he gives you just piece of what a lot of us “Black” people want to say to these supremacists; you know who you are.
Here’s what Adam had to say about the track;
I’ve held on to this record for almost 2yrs [years], afraid of who it may offend afraid of who it may hurt. But as I wake up a Black man in America, I realize this country hasn’t cared that it has hurt me nor others like me. A country built off the free labor of Blacks, a country we have literally carried on our backs. A country that chooses to appropriate Black culture yet chooses to shy away from Black issues. See to me it seems everyone wants to be Black until it’s time to actually be Black. You know the discrimination, the racism, the prejudice, the injustice. Well this record is for all the innocent Black lives taken by crooked law enforcement, this record is for the #BlackLivesMatter movement, this record is for everyone who wants to be a “Nigga” without actually being treated like one. This record is for White America and it’s children who through rap music have adopted “Nigga” into their vocabulary, but remain silent when White cops dispose of us “Niggas” with violence. This record is for all my Negus who call themselves “Niggas”, my brothas this record ain’t just for them.. I also made this record for us..And all who “Wanna Be A Nigga”. – Adam Reverie
Some people are just not ready for this type of record… Truth.
