Royce Da 5’9″ is really progressing in his art, injecting even more substance into his lyrical wordplay. He’s blowing minds, not just what he says, but how he is saying it. This takes place on his new track “Field Negro”.
The Detroit emcee goes into detail on the exploitation of black artists, entertainers and others who are taking part in this situation. No one is safe from his words. There is an obligation, in his eyes to stand up to the injustices that are happening and not be part of the problem. There are a lot of people guilty of this, and this is Royce’s less than subtle way of exposing it. I love where Royce has been going with his music lately.
