‘Nigga,’ ‘nigger,’ or any other variation of the word have long been a part of the English language.
From when the first group of African slaves crossed the Atlantic in the 17th century to the alleged post-racial lifestyle of today, the word ‘nigga’ has been central in the relationship between Blacks and the society that they have always been second class citizens of.
A friend of mine sent me a link on twitter to this mixtape that his friends, local rappers by the name of $urreal, recently put out called Exquisite Corpse and I can honestly say I’m glad he did.
“From the cover art, to the beats, to the lyrics everything is produced by this 4 man collective. You will get a trip into their world and by the time you leave your mind won’t be the same. This is their exhibit and its time for your step into the world of $urreal.”
Here’s one of my favorites from the tape: Emperor Tay (produced by Corbin Butler)
