NEW MUSIC: The Black Opera – Black Superstar (prod. yU)

by Gregorio Vincent

The Black Superstar has always been a paradox in American Culture. African-Americans, and many racialized ‘others’, have for a long time held this odd allure as naturally cool, while at the same time suffering the effects of a body that is instantly criminalized. This is a dangerous duality that can serve as simultaneous impetus and hindrance. This polarization drives an ill collaboration between yU and the mysterious outfit known as The Black Opera, hosted by Mello Music Group. Check out The Black Opera’s “Black Superstar” below and you can download it for free here.
