Ike – Last Days ft. Melat, King Mez & Tank Washington [Song]

Posted on September 29, 2015 by


Los Angeles based producer/emcees King Mez and Ike team up with Austin artists Melat & Tank Washington for this hip-hop song which was created in response to the ongoing violence that has plagued the minority community in America for so long. Addressing both police brutality against minorities (in cases like Sandra Bland, Freddie Gray, etc) and intra-community violence in Latino and African-American neighborhoods, “Last Day” shows Mez and Washington examining the common ways a young black man dies in America, while Melat’s haunting refrain of fearing for one’s life echoes throughout the song.
