THIS TRACK GOES HARD!

I feel like I’ve been transported to a listening island full of nothing but MC’s and audiophiliac producers who’ve baptize my ears in hip-hop-beat-dopeness. My hip hop soul wells have been replenished after listening to this track. There is no doubt that B. Slade lays it down.

This absolutely can be labeled as a “Black Lives Matter, anti police brutality” song but the narrative presented here is nothing new. Let’s just say if I were to label it an activist song then I could also easily put it in the category of Marvin Gaye’s  Inner City Blues or Nas’ Black Zombies. No I’m not necessarily attempting to compare B. Slade to these masters but talent is talent and B. Slade is the truth on #BLACKBLOOD with lines like “Lord I don’t wanna be another hashtag I don’t wanna die”.

When the beat drops at :25 and then that NOTE at :37 and then the angry lyricism at 3:09 by Omega Mythologist, THEN the beat completely flips at the 3:45 mark…OMG. Then at 4:22 the beat kinda flips again. B. Slade brought it. The production  had me like…

jackie-chan-wtf

Okay, enough of my platitudes. Take a listen to #BLACKBLOOD for yourself. 

If Black Lives Matter was established by Lesbian women and Gay Black men, this song needs to be shared and promoted in their circles being that an openly gay ex-super star gospel singer wrote, produced and provided vocals for #BLACKBLOOD.

LGBT hip hop heads need to acknowledge this is the pinnacle of LGBT hip hop for 2016. This is perfection. This is the bar that needs to be reached. Also muthafuckas, it’s July, so there may be a chance but…

You Shall Not Pass!

This shit here needs to be an anthem and it easily surpasses non LGBT hip hop in its overall delivery and mastery. If this track was let loose by Kanye or Kendrick; folks would lose their collective minds and this would be submitted to the halls of an instant hip hop classic track.

This song; the production and arrangement, the rap segment toward the end, this is stellar. B. Slade’s talents with years of experience in the music industry are undeniable here. Sorry, but I thought and was foolishly under the impression that this is what Frank Ocean was gonna be like. If B. Slade produced a rap, hip hop album full of tracks on this level, he would break the internet and force the public to acknowledge LGBT hip hop artists and their influence on the culture and genre.  He would have me like…

Shut-up-and-take-my-money

If you’re an LGBT hip hop head and you don’t add this to your listening collection; your card needs to be pulled and placed under review.

Again…IF this was Drake, Kanye, J. Cole, or Kendrick, this track would be topping the charts. Why, because THIS SHIT IS FIRE! For more awesomeness, check out the lyrics below while listening to the track.


Pull him over to the side
This suspect’s nose is way too wide
That’s when I saw them flashing lights
But I’m a trained & disciplined black samurai
Lord cover all the children
Lord cover all the women

Then my black heart start beat, beating like this like this
Lord please help me make it back home safely to my family tonight
Oh Jesus be a bullet proof vest
Lord I don’t wanna be another hashtag I don’t wanna die

Take deep breaths, take deep breaths
Put your hands on the steering wheel
Put em both in the center make sure they see em
Think twice don’t say nothing

We don’t want no black blood
We don’t wanna see nobody bathing in the black blood
We don’t want no black blood
We don’t wanna see nobody bathing in the black blood

Black blood was dripping from his head
Black blood was dripping from his neck
Well is he dead yet? Let me check…
Wait he’s still wiggling his leg

Traumatized I cried that night
I’d never seen a black man die in front of my eyes
Or at least not, right in front of my face
Lord God Almighty we all need more grace

Then my black heart start beat, beating like this like this
Lord please help me make it back home safely to my family tonight
Oh Jesus be a bullet proof vest
Lord I don’t wanna a be another hashtag I don’t wanna die

Take deep breaths take deep breaths
Put your hands on the steering wheel
Put em both in the center make sure they see em
Think twice don’t say nothing

We don’t want no black blood
We don’t wanna see nobody bathing in the black blood
We don’t want no black blood
We don’t wanna see nobody bathing in the black blood

I suggest you look down
Sabotage, several rusty nails on the ground.
Won’t stop till all respected.
Just laws passed Down by my ancestors.
No matter what’s drawn this
Is the dawn of “No Weapon”.
Crack the sky and saw Gods reflection.
Watch the gun in your hand start melting.
Right to remain silent stop speaking.
Unless you’re asking forgiveness for EVERY beating.
Release Him
Calling on ALL sources.
You’ve seen the hellish acts by crooked law enforcement.
If God you trust then stand with US and join forces.
Brown blood too and
Those they don’t show on the news.
Scum heretics we are the counter terrorist.
And this will reach the capital.
Punishment, if you try to hold us down
By another rope, chains, zip ties, tazers, peppers,
Aiming assault weapons slang word deception.
All Blood is precious
All Blood connects to Love
Without Love we’re all infected!!!
Deadly is dope meet the antidote
And our perfection courts adjourned
I hope you learned your lesson
If not then it’s your turn to strip naked
