Wait until the right-wing media and police unions get ahold of this video.
David Banner released the video for his Tito Lopez-assisted single “Black Fist” and sh*t may hit the fan. But in the words of David Banner, he “doesn’t care.”
Today, the Mississippi native premiered his compelling new video on Revolt TV. The four-minute visual takes a clear stance against police brutality, social injustice, and systemic racism. Knowing the video’s imagery is controversial, David released a statement regarding its meaning.
“The intention of this visual is not to promote violence, but to show that we as a people will no longer accept the loss of innocent black lives,” he said. “This video is a statement and a reminder that black lives won’t be ‘taken’ lightly.”
“Black Fist” will appear on David’s forthcoming LP The God Box, which drops August 19. Watch David’s powerful new video up top.
