Jimmy Wiz releases a single for your thought as we reflect on the struggles of the Black Youth of 1976 – Aluta Continua – Today Our Struggle is an Economic One
‘White Supremacist Money’ ft Jay Claude & Thabo Rametsi (produced by Sbuda Gawd)
JimmyWiz delivers that sociopolitical rap the best way he knows how…. #BARS
What a better time to drop a song of this caliber as we reflect on the struggles of the Youth of 1976.
Jimmy Wiz is by far the most salient rapper due to his articulate bars and his thought provoking social commentary which makes him distinct from young rappers in the game today.
This is attested by his new single titled ‘White Supremacist Money’, which challenges the notion that Black people are inferior and aren’t meant to be economically free.
This Sbuda Gawd produced joint features Jay Claude on a solid hook which complements the tempo and Thabo Rametsi seals it with a spoken word fostering black people to rise with pride.
In this song, the East Rand rapper highlights the harsh past black people had to endure and the economic shackles that still bind them and calls on the Black race to proudly break free from the chains.
While making reference to struggle heroes such as Steve Biko, Solomon “Kalusha” Mahlangu and Martin Luther among others, Jimmy Wiz delves into our current sociopolitical climate including economic freedom, black empowerment, and black pride as he further lambasts the inequities within our justice system.
Touching on the controversy of melanin sale, he argues that the black race is being killed for its melanin which has more value than natural resources such as diamonds, silver and gold. He says “they’re killing us just so that they can reproduce melanin and make money.”
As heard on the first verse when he states: “I’m tired of trying to act like we inferior, I know we Kings and Queens, we superior, a gram of melanin is only 350, exchange rate is in dollars, and I just hope that you get me. For every dead nigga they making money baby, white supremacist money, I’m talking money baby, and all a nigga asked for was his land back, and all I asked for was my land back.”
Jimmy Wiz says if Black people do not cherish their own history and do not continuously pass on the knowledge (on black history) that lives and exists today, in the next 100 years, the same people who cast white people to play Egyptian gods could decide to take Mandela and make him white… (Including the Chris Hanis and Bikos and they could say that these people who fought for your freedom were white).
“We do not want to be reminded that it is we, the indigenous people, who are poor and exploited in the land of our birth. These are concepts which the Black Consciousness approach wishes to eradicate from the black man’s mind before our society is driven to chaos by irresponsible people from Coca-cola and hamburger cultural backgrounds.” Steve Biko.
