[Video] LIl Herb: "Fight Or Flight" (Ft. Common & Chance The Rapper)

Posted on October 15 2014

If you follow the blog regularly then you know we use this space to champion those we recognize leaders around our city and beyond. During a powerful week that has seen continued protests in Ferguson and Common bring out Mike Brown's parents at the BET Hip-Hop Awards for an emotional moment of silence we get this piece from the upper crust of Chicago MCs doing what artists from Chicago do best: provide informed social commentary on the world around them. Speaking from voices that span generations and neighborhood lines, the trio espouse well-intentioned bars that ruminate on everything from the socioeconomic stereotypes of being a young black man to the assumptions of the world. Chance, rocking a LDRS Skate hat might sum it up the best: "called me a thief, called me a boy, call me a coward/at least he didn't call me from county with an hour worth of advice on a five day/why Dough Boy not have the same pops he had on Friday/I'd rather be a real man than a real n***a, real talk." Salute on this one guys.
