Old School hip hop fans will get a potent nostalgia hit from Malcolm Jamal’s latest single, Blacking Out, featuring AGoodman. The beats and rap style may throw back to the glory days of East Coast hip hop, but the lyricism encapsulates the anxiety and anger inspired by our current societal disparity.
It’s tracks like Blacking Out that keep injustice fresh in our minds; ignorance isn’t bliss, but more than that, it’s a visceral invitation to think big and act even bigger. The energy is infectious, and the earworm propensities are relentless.
