The politically-charged banger hears the Run The Jewels rapper rally up listeners as the US presidential election nears ever closer. “Ain’t no saviour coming, Black folks gotta save ourselves/ If it come to your life or a crooked copper don’t be slaughtered/ Word to Assata,” he raps.
For his part, newcomer WooDaReleast talks about being Black in a discriminative American society. “And he can’t go get no job he got tats on his face/ I don’t know why they see me as a threat I’m just trying to be great,” he sings on the hook.
As the track comes to a close, Mike delivers a mini sermon urging people to take to the streets instead of wasting time arguing over who’s more woke.
‘Greatness’ will be included on ‘i am OTHER, Volume 2’, which is the second instalment in a benefit compilation series released to help artists who are impacted by the coronavirus.
Greenwood is the creation of the Run The Jewels rapper alongside former mayor of Atlanta, Andrew J. Young, and Bounce TV network boss Ryan Glover.
Taking to Instagram to share a clip of himself appearing on Bloomberg News, Mike discussed the need to pass a bill that will deliver a stimulus package to those in need.
