Single: The Black Opera - Black Superstar (prod. by yU)

Yo, these cats came so correct on their debut album, many a conscious, revolutionary Hip-Hop fan such as myself simply cannot wait for a follow -up..

Here we get a new morsel from The Black Opera that features the group that seems to covet it's secret nature a great deal expounding on the paradoxes that go along with black and minority celebrity... the beat done by none other than DMV vet and Diamond District member yU.

Another Mello Music Group effort! Best underground label in rap baby!

The Black Superstar has always been a paradox in American Culture. African-Americans, and many racialized ‘others’, have for a long time held this odd allure as naturally cool, while at the same time suffering the effects of a body that is instantly criminalized. This is a dangerous duality that can serve as simultaneous impetus and hindrance. This polarization drives an ill collaboration between yU and the mysterious Black Opera, hosted by Mello Music Group.
