Gift Of Gab, one half of rap duo Blackalicious, brings forth his straightforward lyrical stylings in his latest music video for “The Gentrification Song” off his recently released EP, Rejoice! Rappers Are Rapping Again. He tells it exactly as it is over a montage of black and white buildings and tent cities, detailing businesses closing as they fly by on screen and recounting old friends and family leaving towns they’ve known forever. In the chorus he wonders, “They say it’s all to improve/ But tell me where communities are supposed to move?” Mark Austin Heim directs. Watch below courtesy of NPR Music.
