Raz Simone – Massa Sir

The tear that is Raz Simone’s 2015 continues. Fresh off releasing a video for his Sol diss “Charged Up,” Raz is back with “Massa Sir” off of his upcoming project Trap Spirituals. Β As the title of the project suggests, “Massa Sir” channels and updates the Negro Spiritual for 2015, comparing the hustling, underground economy to the Underground Railroad.

Whether it’s national singles like Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright” or local bangers liker Rasheed Jamal’s “Urban Decay,” it seems as if a number of artists are overtly invoking Negro Spirituals (arguably the most brilliant genre in the history of music, but that’s another post) in their music. Considering it’s 2015, make of that what you will…
