Self Scientific ft. Freddie Gibbs & Krondon - Peaceful (Justice for Oscar)

Posted 5 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
DJ Khalil
Album:
Unreleased

Two years after unarmed Oakland youth Oscar Grant was shot to death by Bay Area Rapid Transit Officer Johannes Mehserle (who was sentenced in November to a mere two years in state prison), the public furor over the murder is a distant memory, but its immediate consequences, as well as its bleak social implications, live on. Released on New Year’s Day to commemorate the anniversary of his untimely death, new single Peaceful finds Cali duo Self Scientific once again demanding Justice for Oscar Grant. Over DJ Khalil‘s ominous boardwork, Chace Infinite, Gary, Indiana fast-riser Freddie Gibbs and Strong Arm Steady representative Krondon administer a lyrical reality check, reminding listeners that, as long we still live “...in a land where just because of your skin crooked cops make n*ggas targets,” we cannot say that our society is a just one. While this timely and incisive single isn’t attached to any forthcoming project, Self Scientific fans can, as always, keep it locked for the latest news and tunes.
