Mistah F.A.B. – “6 Shots”

By Amber B

Mistah F.A.B. will not stand idly by as the list of unarmed African-American victims of police violence grows ever longer. With the paranoid-yet-hopeful 6 Shots,” produced by The Mekanix, Mistah F.A.B. explains the ills affecting the American criminal justice system and decries the racism that plagues all aspects of society. Though much of the song comes from a place of anger, and Mistah F.A.B. directs much of his anger towards police officers, the final verse ends with a plea for action from African-Americans, especially black police officers: “What got me hot is there ain’t no black cops speakin’ out/coulda been your son, coulda been your daughter out there bleedin’ out/tell me what good is having arms if you ain’t reachin’ out/tell me what good is having a tongue if you ain’t speakin’ out/you see there’s power in the people they don’t speak about/you see the power in the people is what I speak about.” The track ends with a clip from a speech byNakia Jones, an African-American officer who did speak out, decrying officers for standing by colleagues guilty of murder.
