Tate Tucker - HandsUpDontShoot (Ferguson Tribute)

Posted one year ago
Producer:
Garrett Lodge

Michael Brown’s murder and the ensuing chaos in Ferguson, Missouri have once again reminded black Americans of a fact that many would rather forget: they, their friends and their families are in mortal danger, simply because of the color of their skin. On his latest single, HandsUpDontShoot (Ferguson Tribute), Los Angeles emcee Tate Tucker reflects on the (possibly false) sense of security he receives from his mixed-race heritage, and worries for his loved ones’ safety. Despite his unease, he ends the record on a defiant note: “Ain’t enough guns in this world to make me tap dance.Garrett Lodge produces the joint’s ominous synth-sample beat. HandsUp isn’t part of a larger set, but those digging this incisive joint should watch our front page for all the latest from the unsigned buzzmaker.
