Music bonds people of many different cultures, ethnicities, and backgrounds around the world. Music has helped people overcome tragedies and express their feelings about the world around them. Racism and police brutality are topics rappers and singers have incorporated in their music for years now. Some examples of those artists are N.W.A, Ice Cube, 2Pac, and more. As we fast forward more than a decade later, the conversation about racism is still alive and new artists are making it their duty to stand up for what is right! We’ve selected five of many artists who’ve used their music to spread awareness about social justice issues that have gone on for way too long.
Teyana Taylor is one of the most creative artists out right now and has been serving vocals for over a decade. In her latest music video, ‘Still’, she dedicated it to those who’ve lost their lives due to racism and police brutality. After watching the music video, many fans can start to see the pain Black people feel on a constant basis in America.
Megan Thee Stallion
In her latest performance on SNL, Megan Thee Stallion dominated the stage with a powerful message about protecting Black women. What did you think of her performance?
Mulatto is another female rapper who has used their art for good. Prior to her video release for her hit single with Gucci Mane, ‘Muwop’, she said there was a surprise at the end of the video, which was a dedication photo to Breonna Taylor. Not only does Mulatto talk about Breonna Taylor and the lives lost due to racism, but she also has been encouraging fans to vote for the upcoming election.
Lil Baby’s hit song ‘Bigger Picture’ painted the reality of how Blacks are treated in America and how the issues going on in the country at this time, are bigger than what we see it as. Plus, the proceeds made from the video went to supporting different organizations associated with the Black Lives Matter movement!
