The past week and a half or so have seen a whole new wave of conversations about race in America, dredged up by the ongoing protests in Ferguson, Missouri following Michael Brown being gunned down by a policeman. We've heard responses in the form of tracks by J. Cole and G-Unit, and now B.o.B throws his hat into the ring with "New Black."
Unlike the aforementioned J. Cole and G-Unit tracks, "New Black" takes a wider angle to all of this, questioning what it means to be "black" in our current day and age. Bobby Ray's never been one to oversimplify things, and it doesn't look like he's trying to change that reputation any time soon.
So who draws the first straw?
Everybody hurt, who calls the first guard?
'Cause soon as you see niggas fightin'
You be the first motherfucker wanna yell out 'Worldstar!'
