Wasiu – “Angry Black Man”

blame it on Shake October 10, 2017

With MTLien 2 dropping before 2018, Montreal’s Wasiu is back with another taste of his upcoming album.

Following a night of “Cigarettes & Poutine,” Wasiu vents his frustrations while confronting the racism pervading our society head on with “Angry Black Man.”

“As a black man in North America, I constantly have to fight Stereotypes,” Wasiu told Noisey. “Amongst them is the ‘Angry Black Man’ one. As a kid I often found myself suppressing my feelings for fear of being labeled as an ‘angry black man’. But growing up I realized that I had every right to not only be mad but express my anger.”

“That’s exactly what this record is,” he continued. “An explosion of repressed aggression and expression. It’s my response to that motherfucka in high school who said, ‘Why are you so mad, slavery and racism is over you’re just being lazy.'”

Over aggressive production from High Klassified, Wasiu touches on the current NFL protests, decries the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, and speaks out against those who would rather he be silent.
