J.Stalin Reminds Us Who “The Boss” Is With New Video
J.Stalin has dropped his latest music video from Prenuptial Agreement 2, “The Boss.” In the video, Stalin revisits the streets that raised him, stopping by the local corner store for a bite to eat, as he pays his gratitude forward, embraces the locals, and continues to feed the streets. As usual, the Stalins bars are out of control, even as he takes the time to educate people on the reality of being Black in America, and how to combat the obstacles we face “when you n****s gon’ realize we under attack?/And they don’t want you to have sh*t if your ass Black/F*ck learnin’ how to shoot, learn how to stack/Get your money and you could buy a hundred MACs.”
