Medikal Hits on Negative Narratives Against Blacks in Scathing Freestyle

Medikal

Reigning VGMA rapper of the year Medikal adds his voice to the ever topical issue of racism on scathing freestyle dubbed  “I’m Not Blank I’m Black“.

The powerful and thought-provoking composition is in two parts. The track opens on a rather somber and reflective note with the rapper struggling to find answers to his own questions: “Is it because I’m black? Is it because I’ve got nappy hair? // Maybe it’s because my chain is expensive, let’s be clear.//

The lyricist then proceeds to hit on cliches and time-worn negative narratives fostered by misinformation and bias against black people and does a brilliant job setting the record straight.

The second part takes things up a notch as the instrumental switches to a hard-hitting grimy beat. Here, Medikal flexes his story-telling skills, vividly narrating a past experience of racism he suffered at the hands of the Amsterdam police. The second part, I must say, finally brings the entire concept of the video home.

It’s nice to hear a song call a spade a spade.
