- By Any Means
- No More Tears
- Sullen Sunday
No, these are not revolutionary speeches spoken by civil rights leaders. Those powerful captions are song titles on the “REPRISE” a Roc Nation compilation album. In its essence, the REPRISE project is a musical protest. Each record serves as the unifying medium to take a stand against social injustice.
If you are an overall music fan, then you won’t be able to resist the amazing melodies from each vocalist, slick bars from every emcee, and the cosmic vibe producers created on all 11 tracks. Heavy Hitters like Rapsody and D Smoke step to the mic with a vicious flow as Jorja Smith, Ty Dolla $ign, and Ambre angelically float through each of their verses.
In the midst of this civil uprising, music like this will serve as the diary for the next generations to come. In an effort to continue what Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Nina Simone, and Public Enemy did, the Reprise Roc Nation compilation album is another reminder that it’s going to take unity and perseverance to change the oppressive systems and political structures that are perpetuating issues like mass incarceration and police brutality.
When streaming this album, remember that all proceeds will support organizations that are fighting to protect victims of police brutality, hate crimes, and all other civil rights violations.
