I’m talkin’ if you gang affiliated you need to protect your block / I’m not talking about them niggas / I’m talking about a cop watch / We gotta go off
With a vicious tongue and unapologetic stance, Brooklyn’s own L.atasha A.lcindor (L.A.) unleashes on gentrification, police brutality, poor education, the media and gang violence in her latest release from her refreshing Fantastic Planet series. On GO OFF, L.A. goes off, pointing intimidating fingers at the culprits — the system and its henchmen, the cops — without being preachy or predictable. She’s always been “ahead of the boys, running,” she says, but now is the time to stop running, speak up and demand change: We need to police our own communities; shit, we need revolution. We need to GO OFF! And from this record alone, L.A. has me convinced. Just listen to the anguish and passion in her voice, as she spits violently over a stripped down NYC beat, and you tell me you’re not ready to “set it off like Left Eye“.
