Bobby Sessions Addresses Police Brutality With “Black America” Video
After a tumultuous couple of weeks that saw the deaths of Baton Rouge resident Alton Sterling on July 5 and Philando Castile in Minnesota on July 6, both killed by law enforcement, plus a shooting in Dallas that left five cops dead, tension in communities has been at an all-time high. Hip-hop artists have spoken up about police brutality in America.
West Coast rappers The Game and Snoop Dogg joined forces to organize a march on the LAPD headquarters after the killings of Sterling and Castile. In Atlanta, T.I. took part in a protest so big that the protestors shut down an expressway entrance. August Alsina and Ace Hood both did their part by participating in marches in Baton Rouge and Miami, respectively.
Dallas lyricist Bobby Sessions addresses police violence in America with a poignant, hard-hitting video for "Black America." With news clips and social media footage of past incidents, Sessions spits about how life is hard for Black Americans across america.
This Tone Jonez-produced track is off of Bobby Sessions project LOA (Law of Attraction) that dropped last year, which you can stream below. "'Black America' is my most popular song because killing black people is STILL relevant. Sad," wrote Sessions on social media.
