It’s tough to talk about anything without mentioning the tragic killing of George Floyd on Monday evening in Minneapolis. Floyd’s life was cut short following an encounter with a police officer who pressed his knee against his neck for nine minutes. Floyd cried out for help and a chance to breathe as other officers stood by and watched. In the days that have followed his passing, residents in Minneapolis have began an uprising in the face of police brutality.
As this situation unfolds in Minneapolis, many have looked for a way to help out. Among those who have pitched in is rapper and actor Aminé. After posting a video in which he conveyed his thoughts on the matter, he donated $1,000 to the Minnesota Freedom Fund. Shortly after donating to those looking to make a change in Minneapolis, he turned his attention towards music.
Aminé has offered a great gift this weekend after highlighting the demonstrations taking place in Minneapolis. He has released “Riri” with Joyce Wrice and Marche’ Black. Together, the trio offers a dope follow-up to the Portland artist’s “Shimmy” video.
“You love?Rihanna but you ain’t a savage/Don’t act like you perfect, you know that we?both?got?some baggage/I was callin’?ya mama and you was callin’ my accountants/You gave me headaches and I gave you too many chances,” he raps.
“Nobody said things would get easier/You gotta believe me/Nobody said things would get easier/You gotta believe me,” Joyce Wrice sings.
With “Shimmy” and “Riri” out, it’s becoming increasingly clear that he is gearing up to release a project this year. While we wait to hear more, check out “Riri” produced by Pasquè.
