This past week has been extremely difficult to say the least. I’ve tried to distance myself from social media and refrain from engaging in verbal disputes in order to better process my own emotions. As a result, I decided to express how I’ve been feeling the best way I know how to. I linked up with my bro @juneyouare and we wrote a song. It was very therapeutic. Hopefully, it provides some clarity or at least a better understanding of the #BlackLivesMatter movement and why we will continue to fight against the systemic oppression black people continue to face in this country. Food for thought…

“Yo, if you’re down, I would love to create a track about everything going on right now.” That was the text Junior “Junyouare” Obour, a dental student at Rutgers University sent to his close friend and NBA 2k20 featured rapper, Dayne Carter last week.
A few days later, they both went to the studio and recorded a raw and honest song that addresses the current social climate from the perspective of two college-educated black men in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Additionally, they are donating 100% of all proceeds earned (via iTunes purchase) to Color or Change – a nonprofit that “designs campaigns to end practices that unfairly hold Black people back, and champion solutions that move us all forward.”
