In the heartfelt release he weighs in on the pain caused by the lives lost while expressing his own frustrations behind the injustice and similar events he’s had to deal with personally. Although, tracks like this won’t make the hottest compilation mixtapes of the summer they are really what makes hip hop what it is. Hopefully the new generation of MCs never forgets that.
