Emcee Monte, from Chicago, IL, is out with a new single titled “I’m so Black” which released on September 25th, 2020. The single is from his EP, Change Gone Come that can be heard on SoundCloud. As many Americans are sitting on the edge of their seats waiting to see how the election unfolds, socially conscious music is the battle cry that America desperately needs. This song holds the power to wake people up, encourage people to vote, encourage people to march in Black Lives Matter protests and take other actions to dismantle the system of oppression and end racism in this country. The lyrics celebrate black folks and dive deep into the cultural and artistic gifts that black people have given to the world, such as music. “I’m so Black” is conscious hip-hop at it’s finest – it’s a musical rally, urging people to wake up, and fight for and celebrate black lives.
The song starts with heavy synths and a pounding 808 bass, demanding the listeners undivided attention. Emcee Monte’s flow fits perfectly with the beat with authentic lyrics that rhyme uniquely.
“My new record is about being black in America, being proud of my heritage, having pride in myself, celebrating my blackness, celebrating black art, and making the statement that black lives matter. I am a positive artist, my music is clean and uplifting. I do not promote violence, drugs, misogyny or any other negative images and stereotypes that have been associated with rap and the hip hop culture in the past. I feel it’s very important, now more than ever, that we use the forum and platform that we have as artists to bring positivity and progress to our community and to work toward a lasting change in perception and reality for the world as a whole.” – Emcee Monte said from his home in Chicago, IL.
