For this song, which I wrote and produced, I wanted to once again speak to the strength of black queer people. I decided to include Bayard Rustin because he is a personal hero of mine. His unsung story is important to our culture and he is my go-to definition of what it means to be unapologetically black.
While my debut EP RAP QUEEN is undergoing the mixing and mastering process, I am happy to announce that I have been invited to join a jazz band from São Paulo, Brazil called Superjazz for a special performance. Taking place at the elegant Bar de Cima in the Jardim Paulista neighborhood in São Paulo, I’ll be joining the band for two selections including a unique rendition of the Goldie classic, “Inner City Life” and “Searching” by Roy Ayers. Check out the short clip above to get a look into the rehearsals.
My debut EP RAP QUEEN produced by DJ Flavya arrives in November
