Trinidad James and Big K.R.I.T. Talk About Race on ‘Blackman Part 1′
The race debate in America has had rappers from across the nation dedicating songs, social media posts and fashion to uniting people and offering positive affirmations. Atlanta rapper Trinidad James, who will be releasing a free album ‘No One is SaFe’ later this year, teamed up with his 2011 XXL Freshman classmate Big K.R.I.T.to spread love for his latest single, ‘Blackman Part 1.’
The soulful track is homage to black men everywhere, encouraging them to be strong and unite as oppose to hating and harming one another.
"Unity is what all communities need, it doesn't matter the color of your skin. Don't let that racial chip hold you down for getting to where you want to go. Help the next man and together we will rise,” said James at the opening of the track.
Despite being dropped from Def Jam, James is having no problem reinventing his sound on his own. Just last week he dropped the Diplo-produced ‘Blackman Part 2.’
