Yesterday, New York emcee L.atasha A.lcindor premiered “Bee. Em (Black Magic)” on Noisey. The video touches on issues of cultural appropriation and the profound lack of respect for Black lives & culture across the board.
Track Name: “Bee. Em – (Black Magic)”
Producers: Another Planet
Directors: Jamee Cornelia & J.Chandler of Scene Media
Quote: “Bee. Em is stepping to frontline and asking the audience to open eyes to the systematic nature of our society towards race and entertainment. It’s also a middle finger to white America’s intentional blindness and implicit theft of our culture and well being. Just really exhausted with the mental, spiritual, and physical death that is happening to Black people and this is the response.” –L.atasha A.lcindor
