new music: r&b/neo-soul vets cody chesnutt and raphael saadiq contemplate violence against black bodies & childhood innocence in “bullets in the streets and blood” visual

September 26, 2016

As the summer comes to a close, we’re reminded of how fortunate we are to have made it to see the other side. In a world where intra-community and police violence are claiming lives at astonishing rates, life, as always, should be something we’re thankful for. Cody ChesnuTT’s new song “Bullets In The Streets And Blood,” sings of the innocence of the children who have to bare witness to the violence and hope for the future our communities and country. The anthemic single gets a much appreciated bassline from the one and only Raphael Saadiq, whose soundscapes match Cody’s timbre perfectly. Watch the accompanying visuals below.
