New Music – Meek Mill feat. The-Dream – Young Black America
Written by admin on June 26, 2017
In the midst of controversy over his alleged involvement in Safaree Samuels’ recent altercation, Meek Mill unleashes “Young Black America,” a new single off his forthcoming album, Wins & Losses.
The thought-provoking track features an introspective Meek over an instrumental that’s reminiscent of JAY-Z’s “Blueprint (Momma Loves Me).” “I was on that corner,” he raps. “Trying to get my coins up / Coppers run up on us / And we turning Jackie Joyner / White man kill the black man / They never report us / Black man kill the white man / They gon’ start a war up.”
Directed by Spike Jordan, the powerful video depicts Mill’s conversation with a young dealer, along with vignettes about another young man’s death. It reads like a Nas scene in Belly, which was inspired by Esco’s “One Love.” In it, Nas schools a young man about the perils of the street life before giving him jewelry. Meek does the same here with a Dreamchasers chain.
