Keedron Bryant and His Mom Release Viral George Floyd Protest Anthem on Juneteenth

12-year-old Keedron Bryant's "I Just Wanna Live" is a modern protest anthem.

"I'm a young Black man doing all that I can…" begins the original a cappella clip of Keedron Bryant's protest song, "I Just Wanna Live."

The song was written by Bryant's mother one day after the video of George Floyd's murder at the hands of police officers rocked the world and sparked protests around the globe. The video went viral, moving people around the globe and resonating with the rage and pain people were feeling and still feel today.

The moving track has earned Bryant a record deal with Warner Records and it's officially released today, on the 155th anniversary of Juneteenth.

But despite the success that the song has earned Bryant, the song's inherently tragic message has many people lamenting the fact that it had to be released at all.

Noname Serves Up the Perfect Response to J. Cole with "Song 33"

The J. Cole and Noname beef has a clear winner.

Just a couple of days after J. Cole dropped a petty track supposedly aimed at her, Noname has issued her response.

In her first new solo song of the year, "Song 33," the fan favorite Chicago rapper teamed up with prolific producer Madlib for a jazzy track that touches on the deaths of numerous Black people, especially Black trans women. She references Oluwatoyin Salau, a young Black woman in Florida who was found dead after tweeting about her sexual assault. "Why Toyin body don't embody all the life she wanted?" Noname raps in her trademark smooth flow. "A baby, just nineteen / I know I dream all black / I seen her everything, immortalizin' tweets all caps / They say they found her dead / One girl missin', another one go missin'."
