Dismayed by centuries of inequality and frustrated with the stateside tragedies of recent weeks, The Game visited Power 106 to recite a spoken word poem. Indeed, he took advantage of his platform, using airtime to make a statement.
“The problem started with our fathers, being forced to sell drugs to our own people,” he begins. The poem finds him tackling systemic racism and urging African Americans to treat each other with love and care.
Amidst references that range from John F. Kennedy to Hennessy, the West Coast MC infuses rap rhythms and interpolations (borrowing Drake’s “Energy” flow, for instance). Ultimately, the narrative he pens asks for a reunion of races, but seems to suggest it may be too late.
