21 Savage has shared a new track from his debut project Issa Album called “Nothin New,” which delves directly into the topic of systemic and institutional racism. The Atlanta rapper’s change in tone is a direct response to critics who feel he only raps about drugs, women and violence. In opposition, the track, produced by Metro Boomin and Zaytoven, directly touches on how people misconstrue his music while the hook identifies oppression.

In the video, visuals begin with clips of Colin Kaepernick, LeBron James, and Barack Obama discussing racism and police brutality in America. Images from Ferguson, Baton Rouge and other cities where protests took place after police killed unarmed African Americans flash before the screen as well. Check the video above and share your thoughts below.
