  1. Hahaha, this is too black, but hey who cares? It is 7 and a half minutes long and it felt like 3 mins only. hahaha. Hopefully it will not go over people’s heads.

  2. Love it Love it Love it. I love everything about this song from the the poem at the beginning to the last verse from Akala everything is done perfect, no doubt this song will have white people moaning like they do every year black history month comes around and this makes me love it even more lol.

  3. I love this…… Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Akala is the shit! Love this dude…he has mad skills… All of these Brothas have me with a big smile on my face… LOVE IT…LOVE IT…LOVE IT… HAPPY BLACK HISTORY MONTH MY UK BROTHERS AND SISTERS…..

  4. I think that Poet from your first post should be watching and listening to this single. To say that black history starts with Tinie Tempa and Tinchy Stryder. I cant, I just cant!!
    Well dont to all those rappers who clearly “get it”!

  5. I must have looked like a nutcase smiling on the bus all the way home listening to this on repeat! LOVE!

  6. What an awesome track. Reminds me of why I fell in love with hip hop all those years ago. So glad I watched this after the idiocy of the the so-called ‘poet’ in the post before.

  7. Well done all rappers ft.

    Would have been good to see these artists respond to UK black history and recent events – The images used look more like a homage to US Black History Month – a stereotype of Black History Month…US BHM is it’s own thing as is UK BHM. Where are the UK cultural references, lessons, leaders, forefathers? UK Hip hop fought a long time to establish it self…

    We saw lots and lots of ignorance and racism from our media, political leaders and general public following this summers riots… would be nice to get closer to our issues and our shores. Our youth need that.

  8. Big tune and video but which idiot spoilt everything by spelling ‘Malcolm’ wrong in the background?! Come on son!!!!!
