The latest episode of the series features Jazz Cartier from Toronto breaking down the meaning behind his track “Black and Misguided.”
The episode begins with the rapper spitting some lyrics from the track:
“My daughter’s a mama, my son a statistic My grandmama dieing, that cancer is viscous I’m stuck on the corner, can’t pay her a visit I’m servin’ the fiends, get my auntie addicted We hittin’ the lick, got my bitch on the lookout Wait for the weekend, and shoot up the cook-out Been in a rut, running a muck Why you standin’ over there with your foot out? Call in the casualty Feelin’ like king on that balcony Babies are born into agony Niggas will never die happily What’s the American dream? Sorry to say, it’s a fantasy My demons taught me my reality So please, do not question my vanity…”
Jazz discusses the meaning by the track by saying that it challenges Black stereotypes. Jazz uses examples from his own personal life, in the song, to show how these experiences really hit home for him. Watch how Jazz Cartier breaks down the track “Black and Misguided” below.
