Is Brooklyn in the house?

After warning you that life will pass you by if you don’t recognize the “Signs” with Talib Kweli and Joell Ortiz, and sharing the ultimate story of betrayal alongside eLZhi on “Maxine,” Ace Clark is back with the release of his sophomore project, Black Privilege.

The follow-up to 2015’s The Good Fight, Clark’s new album was crafted with the desire to push the culture forward while withstanding the test of time with live instrumentation and a neo-soul influence that uniquely includes samples that are actually Ace’s vocals that have been pitched, corrected or modulated.

At 14 tracks, Black Privilege also features appearances from Fashawn, Skyzoo, Beanie Sigel, Khalia Cummings, and a few others.

On top of the album, Clark also released a video for “Hard to Breathe” with Skyzoo and Tommy Versailles. A tribute to Eric Garner, Philando Castillo, Tamir Rice and all the lives that have been taken by police brutality, the visual is intended to show moments of excessive force and unprovoked uses of power while Ace, Sky and Tommy touch on gun reform and the injustices faces by people of color.
