Another week has gone by, and the fight for Black lives and racial equality is as unwavering as before. Artists have continued to use music as an outlet for their frustrations and to bring greater attention to issues like police brutality and racial injustice. In the same vein as last week, we’re highlighting some new protest anthems of sorts that highlight the systemic racism in America and demand change for the Black community.
Lil Baby came through with the immensely powerful “The Bigger Picture,” which examines the recent wave of Black Lives Matter protests. He also opens up about his own experiences with racism on the track, including the conditions of his two-year stint in prison back in 2014. DaBaby and Roddy Ricch also used their voices to speak out in support of the Black Lives Matter movement by releasing a BLM remix of their smash hit, “Rockstar.”
One song that proves unrelated to the current climate but is worthy of a spotlight is the latest posthumous single from Pop Smoke, “Make It Rain,” with Rowdy Rebel. This week, Pop’s manager, Steven Victor, announced that the rapper’s posthumous album would be delayed until July in light of recent events.
Check out the rest of our latest additions to our “Fire Emoji” playlist and let these songs motivate you to get up and fight against injustice.
