King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude

Pusha T gave powerful performance on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” last night. Performing new track “Sunshine” along with “Crutches, Crosses, Caskets” off his new project King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude, Pusha touched on the racial issues the country is still facing. The socially conscious song “Sunshine” is perfectly complemented by Jill Scott soulful crooning on the hook, and mentions Freddie Gray, Dom Lemon, Huey P. Newton, and Chief Keef.

When asked by Noah whether this is a theme present throughout the album Pusha T retorted:

“I’m talking about everything that’s going on in society. The good, the bad, and the ugly.”

‘King Push – The Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude’ drops Friday December 18th via Def Jam & G.O.O.D. Music. The album is available now for preorder on iTunes.

The whole world sat in front of their television screens and watched everything unfold in Baltimore. Things got out of hand when a bunch of teens started rioting and looting in the local businesses in the community. This caused Governor Larry Hogan to sign an executive order, declaring a state of emergency and activating the National Guard and Mayor Rawlings-Blake to impose a mandatory curfew starting tonight from 10 PM to 5 AM. After last night several police officers are injured and some local businesses were looted, but that did not stop the citizens of Baltimore.

Baltimore

The good people of Baltimore, came out of their homes this morning; gathering brooms and dust pans to clean their community streets.

Baltimore native Brave Williams from R&B Divas LA on TVOne came out and helped the people of the community clean the streets. She brought brooms, gloves and trash bags; and encouraged everyone to join in and help clean up the community.

We hope that things continue to get better in Baltimore and Freddie Gray gets justice.

FLY News: Riots Break Out In Baltimore On The Day of Freddie Gray’s Funeral!

Baltimore

The unexplained death of 25 year old Baltimore native Freddie Gray while in police custody has caused tension between the law enforcement and citizens of Baltimore to rise at an all time high. Gray suffered from a fatal spinal cord injury after he was cuffed and placed in the back of a police van. It isn’t clear as to how Freddie Gray’s spinal cord got injured, but people believe that once he was placed in the van, something else had to happen.

This incident caused the people of Baltimore to demand answers. The protest first started as a peaceful one, but now it is getting real serious. People are now resulting in rioting and lashing out towards police officers. Even famous gangs like Bloods and Crips came together to take a stand towards police brutality.

According to WBAL, Baltimore City police has announced that they received a ‘credible’ threat against the law enforcement officers. The BC police released a statement saying, “The Criminal Intelligence Unit received credible information that members of various gangs including the Black Guerilla Family, Bloods, and Crips have entered into a partnership to ‘take out’ law enforcement officers.”

“Rioting and looting” has broken out around areas of the city, a local CVS was looted and set on fire, police cars destroyed, and according to reports 7 police officers were seriously injured.  All this occurred right after the funeral of Freddie Gray. The family of Gray urged for peace on the day they laid their son to rest, but that request went unheard.

The “agitators” have been described as mostly young teenagers who left school early for a mass “walk out”.  Protests in Baltimore have been relatively peaceful for 6 days until Saturday and now today. People can be seen throwing objects at police vehicles as they drive by. Fire fighters are also being targeted as they try to put out fires started. A fire hose was actually cut on live television, people in the neighborhood were very displeased. An older women pictured below showed her disgust for what’s going on in her neighborhood. The situation is just out of control.

Baltimore Riots

 

We definitely understand the frustration and anger, but this rioting and looting is just sad and unfortunate and honestly has nothing to do with death of Freddie Gray itself.  We just hope city of Baltimore only endures a day/night of this and people get back peacefully protesting.
