Atlanta rapper Ralo drops his new single Dear Your Honor, speaking on institutional racism along with Shy Glizzy. Read more about this release here:
ATL’s Ralo makes thoughtful trap music, with equal parts rattling hi-hats and depth of feeling. Today, Ralo recruits fellow high-pitched barker Shy Glizzy to discuss institutional racism in the criminal justice system on “Dear Your Honor.” Rhyming over DJ Plugg‘s plaintive piano, rubbery bass, and syncopated handclaps, Ralo draws a direct line from poverty to crime rates, excoriating judges across the nation for locking up a disproportionate number of black men: “Who the fuck wanna be poor?/Who the fuck wanna be broke?/I’d rather sell some dope.” Premiered today by Noisey, “Dear Your Honor” is the latest single from Ralo’s Birdman-hosted mixtape Diary of the Streets II, hitting the internet on August 30th. Ralo also recently released the eighth chapter of his video diary, which details his life on the streets of Atlanta, on YouTube.
