Produced by Chigz Music. Directed by Jay Mavaz.
The artist formerly known as YP returns with more meaningful music — stuff that does a lot more than scratch the surface of social issues. Today, he takes a deep look into some of the high profile black men who have been slaughtered at the hands of police officers. Unjustly.
Laquan McDonald. Alton Sterling. Philando Castile. These names are more than just headlines. They had families, friends, children, mothers and fathers. Sometimes the human aspect is forgotten — and Backwood reminds us of this. This is a deeper look into humans lost at the hands of gun violence — from police or otherwise.
This is another great release from YP, who has given us two amazing records this summer alone. Very important stuff. Watch his video, featuring a great hook from ASsata Jones, below.
