Following the release of Love And Hate released in February. Young Black And Gifted return with a video for “Respect Violence.”
The Kidd Called Quest-produced track is sampled from a famous Killer Mike rebuttal of Bill O’Reilly claiming hip-hop music and culture creates Godless, mindless criminals.
“I would say (to) people that say hip-hop is violent, let’s start where the real violence started. Let’s start with the three major Abrahamic religions, and let’s do away with their books. Let’s start with governments and geo ward politics, let’s do away with our leaders,” the duo said about the track in a statement. “So after we get down the violent scale, of all the things that create real violence to get to music, it’ll be easy to get to hip-hop.”
