We got a new episode of Nikki Hears It First! Where I film my reaction to hearing a new track or watching a music video from an indie artist. This time on my eighth episode, I’m watching Hip-Hop Artist KB The General with his music video “She Don’t Smoke”. Take a look at what I thought about it and I would love to hear what you guys think about the track/visual!

This track comes at you like a speeding bullet, both Grindstone and Bomani Armah have really fast flows. Make sure you catch the lyrical narrative about black culture. You can even say this is their take on revolutionary rap. They hit hard topics like high real estate prices, online media exposing the worse, and death from police brutality. The production and flow really make this something fun to listen to, even though they touch on real hard topics. The visual presents a cutting-edge graphics that bring their song BLACK STUFF to life. Grindstone and Bomani Armah are letting you in to the multi-faceted world of Black people in America. [LINKS] WEBSITE || FACEBOOK || TWITTER ||
