Over the past week and change, we’ve heard numerous rappers weigh in on the events in Ferguson, Missouri, and their responses have been as different as the artists themselves: some feel predominantly sorrow and rage, while for others grief is mixed with excitement about the popular movement the incident has ignited. Dizzy Wright takes an emotionally-charged, yet cerebral approach to the issues of racism and police brutality on new promo single I Need Answers. Backed by AmpOnTheTrack‘s minor-key piano chords and slow-paced percussion, the Funk Volume signee challenges both the police and society at large to explain themselves, and take accountability for their actions. Booth-acclaimed songstress Nikkiya lends her vocals to the hook. This record isn’t attached to a larger set, but we’ll keep you posted on Dizzy’s plans as we learn more.
