“As a brother with a good heart…I say f**k you if you racist.”
That’s how Dame D.O.L.L.A opens his newest song “Blacklist”.
As you can tell by his first verse, this song covers D.O.L.L.A’s most intimate thoughts on racism, police brutality, and President Trump.
After the recent protests following George Floyd and Breonna Taylor’s deaths, many celebrities and athletes are using art to express their frustrations. In “Blacklist” Dame holds nothing back. He references Muhammad Ali’s activist efforts in the ’60s as a fellow African American athlete. He says “Ali wasn’t the greatest just cause his hands worked. Frontline for his people this was a man’s work!”
Dame also expresses what it’s like being a wealthy black man in America and how no matter his status as a professional athlete he still feels the pain of the people in his community. “As a rich black man living in this country, it’s hard being comfy. When the hate your people get is coming from the ones amongst me.”
Dame left nothing unsaid on this one.
