Rapping and producing may not be quite as dangerous as jumping the Snake River Canyon on a steam-powered rocket, but it does take a daredevil to spit the kind of truth that David Banner does on new promo single Evil Knievil. Here, Siege Monstracity's gospel samples and gritty breakbeat set the stage for a stinging indictment of anti-black racism in the U.S. and beyond. After Banner's fiery verses, which cover everything from the Tuskegee sylphilis experiments to the legacy of Belgian colonialism in the Congo, Ernestine Johnson steps up to the mic to deliver a few lines of spoken-word poetry as the song fades out. This incisive jam is just a loosie, but we'll keep you up to date on Banner's plans in the weeks and months ahead.
