For most of America, Baltimore is known for The Barksdale crew of the Wire and Cal Ripken than it is for hip-hop. However, that doesn’t mean a young B-More emcee like Los can’t dream big. How big? How does the White House sound? That’s exactly the topic Los metaphorically tackles on Next Black President, the first leak off his upcoming Shooter mixtape. Over the Baron Boys inspirational tribal drum beat, the DJBooth Freestyle Series alum discusses issues facing today’s community, ranging from hatred and jealousy to the absence of father figures. Inspirationally, Los challenges listeners to see things from a different perspective and embrace the obstacles they face to become a stronger person, and maybe even eventually have the power to become the Next Black President. Is this track dope enough for Los’ dreams of running the hip-hop free world to come true? Hey, I’m sure plenty of people told Barack Obama he’d never become the first black president, so anything’s possible. DJBooth, cast your votes now.
