East New York Brooklyn emcee Jamel gives a powerful message in his new single “Lambo” in light of the current surge and highly publicized police brutality cases.
The boom bap original hip hop sound produced by Ac3, one half of production duo Kids From The Moon, eloquently incorporated a thought driven speech from the co-founder of the Black Panther’s, Bobby Seale. Jamel continues to talk politics in regards to police brutality, materialism, and modern day slavery. “I had a dream they stole my Lamborghini / Traded for a crock pot, baking soda and a Mitsubishi/“, raps Jamel.
It represents the way drugs were being placed in our communities and for some the only way of escaping these environments is through rap music. The theme behind Lambo is loosely based on my experiences growing up in East New York, Brooklyn. The Lamborghini in the song represents the American dream.
If you enjoy the emcee’s copacetic lyrics, Jamel is scheduled to release his debut mixtape No Sleep Til Brooklyn late summer.
