Wyclef Jean ‘Bang Bang Bang’: Hip-Hop Artist’s New Track Inspired By #Chicago Violence (AUDIO)

Hey Y’all!

It’s Your Gyrl, Ms. Carmen aka Platinum Voice PR bringing some new music to you! I always welcome you to my Platinum Music Listening Party! Please feel free to leave a comment about the music presented to you today!  Today is it’s a song by Wyclef and it’s talking about Chicago Violence.

My City....Chicago!

My City….Chicago!

Renowned recording artist Wyclef Jean this week released his latest track, a low-key, acoustic song inspired by a recent visit he made to Chicago.

The ex-Fugee’s new song, titled “Bang Bang Bang,” is off his new 33-track mix tape “April Showers” and begins with the lyrics “I landed in Chicago / Everybody loves Sosa / The youth in the street told me / We love you when shotters / Chicago, shoot first, then class / That’s still my deal on the street now.” Jack Red is also featured on the song.

Wyclef also was in town this week apparently shooting a video to accompany the track, according to his Twitter.

Wyclef’s emotional tribute to Chicago comes on the heels of the release of a track by Lupe Fiasco that explored similar themes following the shooting death of 6-month-old Jonylah Watkins.

We have lost some or our future doctors and lawyers to this violence. I’d like to ask you a question Rahm, “What are you going to do about this NOW?”
