More and more artists are turning the tables on this country to speak out against the past and future injustices (probably having something to do with the new guy in the white-colored house), and local rapper Chill Moody joins the crowd with the energized “This Ain’t My America”.

Spending the video as a hollowed silhouette, Moody spits hindsight of slavery, mass incarceration, and gun violence to name a few (“Outraged when we take a knee, completely silent when we take a bullet”), keeping contained to portrayed a concerned citizen. Taking notes from Run The Jewels and A Tribe Called Quest, brass instrumentation fills the gaps between each line, added an extra layer of depression to the overall fuming aesthetic these politically charged hip-hop songs portray.

While I’m sure we’ll start to see a steady stream of these neo-protests, every contribution, including Moody’s, speak some sort of truth. Until then, we should “..hold these words for the people until we are treated equal” and fight for what we know is right.
