New Coons

Rapper/Actor Ohene Cornelius released this powerful freestyle turned remake of Kanye West’s New Slaves in music video form this week. It defly uses archival film and television clips to reinforce the message that many black entertainers and politicians today are just modern versions of “Coons.”

This is not unlike the point that Kanye West attempted to make in the original version of the song. However, Ohene puts his own spin on things by giving specific examples of “new coons.”

Check out the video and let us know if you agree or disagree with the overall message in the comments below.
