Toka Fly takes a stand on “Fed Up”

Rising artist Toka Fly releases his new protest anthem “Fed Up”, premiered by Hip-Hop-N-More. Led by inspired words from the great Martin Luther King Jr., “Fed Up” sees Toka discussing the death of George Floyd, the worldwide #BlackLivesMatter protests and the historic black wall street. It is, in fact, the black wall street reference that is the song’s most powerful moment as Toka raps:

“Who was this concerned when a hundred died on black wall street?” followed by intentional silence at 1:39 of the song driving home Toka’s point that while George Floyd’s death may very well be a historical tipping point, #blacklivesmatter wasn’t always something people stood for in principle or practice.
