Rising artist Toka Fly releases his new protest anthem “Fed Up”, premiered by Hip-Hop-N-More. Led by inspired words from the great Martin Luther King Jr., “Fed Up” sees Toka discussing the death of George Floyd, the worldwide #BlackLivesMatter protests and the historic black wall street. It is, in fact, the black wall street reference that is the song’s most powerful moment as Toka raps: “Who was this concerned when a hundred died on Black Wall Street?” followed by intentional silence at 1:39 of the song.
This is driving home Toka’s point that while George Floyd’s death may very well be a historical tipping point, #BlackLivesMatter wasn’t always something people stood for in principle or practice. Of the song Hip-Hop-N-More says: “A solid track to amplify #BlackLivesMatter…’Fed Up’ will definitely move your spirit.”
