The-Dream – Black (Lyric Video)

blame it on Shake April 29, 2014

Seemingly moved by the recent controversy surrounding Clippers’ (future ex) owner Donald Sterling, The-Dream releases a new song and lyric video with a powerful message.

Black isn’t just a color. Black isn’t just a race anymore. It’s a feeling and aplace from which one feels isolated by the world of the governing elite.

    I wonder how many artists are going to use this bullshit situation and gain credibility

    first Plies fake ass, now dream smh

    • Mmm, your comment just radiates positivity!

        I don’t give a fuck what my comment radiates, this shit is mad corny

        Dream and plies are opportunist, I would respect It more if it came out earlier, but if it takes a racist piece of shit for you to drop a song like this it’s corny, he’s been sitting on this song for a minute, now he wants to put it out for attention hence opportunist….. peace out!

          Idk man. Sometimes making these kinda songs while an issue is relevant is more effective then making these kinda songs without the context of an issue in which people could look at and think about at the time.

          i can understand where you’re coming from but different artists move in different ways. not everybody can be a yasiin bey or james baldwin, etc. inspiration hits folks at varying times. as an artist myself, i address a wide range of topics in my works but certain things i don’t touch on, until i’ve received the impetus personally, to do so.

      I gotta say though folks that call themselves gangsta or real or whatever. Have you heard Plies latest project? Tell me he’s not telling the straight up truth about the hood? You can say its ignorant or trying to gain credibility or whatever but Plies spoke a boat load of truth on Last Real Nigga Alive. On this song though, I’ve always enjoyed Dream’s music. He has some great albums and this also was a DOPE song.

    What I like is that this song doesn’t necessarily have to apply to the Sterling situation. Love when popular black artist actually make an attempt to make socially conscious music. Try to make change, try to do something.

  • The Incredible Creation
