January 15, 2013 marks what would be Martin Luther King, Jr.‘s 84th birthday, had the civil rights leader not been assassinated in April of ‘68. In honor of the occasion, D.C. spitter SmCity has released Sports & Entertainment, a new single examining the stereotypes that still keep countless African-American youths from fulfilling their true potential. Marcnfinit mans the boards on this incisive banger, flipping a brass-heavy funk sample as Sm and guest rhymesayer Maffew Ragazino reflect on the apparent lack of options that led them to channel their dreams, and their efforts, into b-ball and rap while they were coming up. For this record, the reader-acclaimed New Year’s Revolution and more, check out new album Dream Cemetery when it drops digitally March 9.
