B.O.B. Releases "New Black" in Response to the Events in Ferguson

B.O.B. is the latest artist to respond to the horrific incidents that have gone on in Ferguson, Missouri this past week after the murder of Michael Brown.  This self-produced track looks into the meaning of being black, saying that “we need less rappers and more doctorates” and “less ballers and more profits”.  Bobby Ray released the song on twitter last night with the caption “we all cry, we all hurt, but in the end… all we have is each other”.  Listen to New Black below.
