Aloe Blacc-Hello World (The World Is Ours)

Aloe Blacc has another feel-good pop anthem in “Hello World (The World Is Ours).” A bunch of co-ed do-gooding taggers offer positive energy to the neighborhood and work to dispel the negative image of those of who wear hoodies.


Dice Raw-Animal

Dice Raw’s visual for “Animal” uses Al Jolson, the Civil Rights Movement, racist cartoons and other images of Black white race struggles in America to convey the meaning behind his simple repeated refrain for humanity. The song is from 2013’s Jimmy’s Back which, is based on Michelle Alexander’s book, The New Jim Crow. Dice Raw also created a documentary about the prison economy to accompany the album.
