Chill Moody Gets His Voice Across on “This Ain’t My America”
Now that Donald Trump's inauguration has passed, making him the 45th President of the United States, a lot of rappers are taking to wax to rap about the problems they have with America and its political direction. The latest is West Philly native Chill Moody who releases "This Ain't My America," a three-minute sound off on what he sees that's wrong in the States today.
“Ain’t hitting mats/ that’s concrete you meet when they body slam ya/ And we still debating about some body cameras?/The bigger picture/You ain’t famous until they slain ya/Negatives develop/Make it hard for them to frame us,” he raps.
The chorus follows the same message, “We hold these words for the people and until the day I see us treated equal, this ain’t my America.” With the climate so hot and race tension at an all-time high, rappers aren't holding their tongue for now one.
"This Ain't My America" is produced by Artiphacts and the visual was done by Made By Murdic. Chill Moody let's us really see what he is saying and hopes to spark conversations around lived experiences, identity, and change.
Last year in March the Philly native dropped his new EP Before I Take Off to celebrate his journey back to SXSW in Austin, Texas.
