Black As Heaven – [Sho Baraka] feat. [Mag44]

As long as I can remember, there has always been music that has had a large amount of cultural impact when it comes to its subject matter. whether it be speaking on social injustice, current issues within the climate, and so on and so forth. One subject that will never fade away, is speaking about what it means to be black in America today. With super impactful records like Lil Baby’s “The Bigger Picture” and Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright” leading the pack of superior songs with a powerful subject matter, its only right that the trend continues to continue to kick knowledge and game and inform others on black history, and what it means today. Making his debut on the Lyrical Lemonade platform, Sho Baraka is here to drop off his latest visual for his song, “Black As Heaven”.

Being derived from the term “Black as hell”, Sho Baraka adds a more positive annotation to the meaning and refers to it as “Black As Heaven”, letting it be known and showing it proudly what it means to be black and how he isn’t afraid to show it, no matter what. Designed to be as thought-provoking and insightful as can be, this Derek Minor-produced record does not fail at covering all grounds of what it means to have an impactful song in the year 2022. Sonically, the production stands out as it blends elements of modern-day trap music and African drums together to appeal to a broader audience. The flow of the song, stacked with the powerful lyrics is just as catchy as well, adding more fuel to the fire of the record.
