The song spotlights black men and women, including Tyler, the Creator and Issa Rae, and many more who have started their own businesses. There was also a moment of silence for Nipsey Hussle.
Pharrell addresses racial inequality in his whispered verses: “The system imprison young black boys/Distract with white noise.” Jay-Z discusses the lack of equal representation for minorities in media — “Lies told to you through YouTubes and Hulus/Shows with no hues that look like you do” — and advocates for supporting black-owned businesses: “Black Twitter, what’s that? When Jack gets paid, do you?/For every one Gucci, support two FUBU’s.”
This song has a good spirited tone as you feel the power from these people who overcame generations of poverty and hurt. Our black people are more powerful than they want us to know. This video is evident. Please take time to soak into the success stories filled throughout the visual.
