Budding Connecticut MC ANoyd—who made headlines in 2018 with his 4:44-inspired album Blame It On Jay-Z—has released a powerful new single and video speaking out against racism and injustice.
The song “BlacKKK Baby” is directed at future generations of Black children, providing warning and advice, while describing life as Black man in America. While announcing that the new video had dropped, ANoyd quoted some of the song’s powerful lyrics in the caption:
“I love you Black Baby, Don’t let nobody take advantage of you Black Baby, You’re strong enough to use your bare knuckles Black Baby, You’re intelligent so use ya brain muscles Black Baby, You’re not alone stand next to other Black Babies.”
“Save Our Black Babies,” he wrote in another post.
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” – Letter from a Birmingham Jail, Martin Luther King Jr.
Cinematography for “BlacKKK Baby” was handled by David Ruzicka, with Pierce Pyrzenski taking care of editing. Along with ANoyd himself, the video stars Seven Grant, Peaches Levine, Lionel Edwards, Jeff Arelus, Anthony Sagay, and Nick Hale.
The video switches between scenes of ANoyd spending time with his family and baby (presumably his own), and being a victim of police brutality after being pulled over for a traffic stop.
“BlacKKK Baby” is HipHopCanada’s Song of the Day. You can find the single on various digital streaming platforms including and Spotify via Audio BRGNDI / EightyHD.
