Fred The Godson ft. Cocoa Sarai “Black Power” Video

Class is in session. Today’s teacher is Fred The Godson, who grew up hard in the Bronx before reshaping his future with the power of the pen. “I’m trying to teach the youth how to play now,” he raps on “Black Power,” a Heatmakerz production off his new Contraband II mixtape. “They still thinking Rosa Parks is a playground.” The song’s video juxtaposes grainy footage of police brutality with images of slavery, lynchings, and Civil Rights martyrs, while Bed Stuy’s own Cocoa Sarai wails about how “Black lives don’t matter” over an ominous sound bed replete with rock guitar riffs. As Fred kicks the real-too-real, the Edutainment continues because Knowledge Reigns Supreme: “Four years for a bachelors, my ancestors did 40 years for their masters—what a disaster.” As another Bronx poet put it: “You must learn.”
