Just Cleve

 

Sometimes it’s easy to forget how far black people have come in the past few decades, especially when racism still (often casually) rears its ugly head. In song “Came A Long Way”, young Toronto rapper Just Cleve reminds listeners of black activists’ struggles; names like Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, and Malcolm X get name-dropped against the slow beat.

 

The music video is filmed, home-made style, with an urban setting as Just Cleve raps, even encouraging black girls to love their natural hair.

 

“Came A Long Way” was produced by Giovanni and released on January 15. It can be purchased here via Bandcamp. Watch the music video below:
