Frequent collaborator with The Roots and Philly emcee Dice Raw returns with an upbeat and gracious tune closing out Black History Month with “Young, Gifted & Black.”
Praising the young, black and intelligent, Dice Raw uses the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z, Jimi Hendrix, Diddy and more as examples of the genius that can come about when a black person is given a chance. The sample sounds like it uses a similar piano progression as the one in Jay Z’s Dr. Dre-produced “Lost One,” doesn’t it?
Anyway, you can stream “Young, Black & Gifted” below and purchase it on iTunes.
