Start a “RIOT!” with Angry Blackmen’s new single

posted by Alejandro Hernandez December 8, 2017

2017 has been a wild year, and Chicago rap duo Angry Blackmen dropped their latest single releasing some of their frustrations about it, claiming it to be “The Blackest song of all-time.”

The duo’s previous tracks have a more upbeat and positive sound that contradicts their name, but “RIOT!” is their first single that strays away from that sound in favor of something more, well, angry. With an aggressive bass and sinister synths on the production, the hook asks the listener if they’re “Down to start a riot? Are you down to start a war?/ We some Angry Blackmen and we kicking down the door.”

They deliver their lyrics in a flurry of punches with such ferocity, the listener is sure to feel pumped enough to incite a full staged riot (or at the very least finish their last set of reps at the gym). Either way, Angry Blackmen finished the year on a strong note, and are set to be an act to look out for in the Chicago scene come 2018. Make sure to listen to the track below and include it in your daily motivational/hype playlist.
