Edo G is the original emo rapper-since the Bostonian released his classic Life Of A Kid In The Ghetto (Polygram) he‘s been shining light on the traumas of black people with a sentimental lens. “Shed A Tear” follows this path with lines like “We the number one target /Grew up in disease without antibiotics A lot of narcotics /9-11 didn‘t make me patriotic/I don‘t believe the sniper‘s John Muhammed.” Edo‘s not paranoid-just giving voice to the voiceless and power to the people.
