Rapper J.I.D. knows that Black History month is every month, but decided to celebrate on Wednesday with the single “Skegee.” “Skegee”, short for Tuskegee, AL, dives deep into the city and its HBCU, tackling the mistreatment of Black people in the United States and recalling his experience being recruited for Tuskegee University. On an empowering note, the lyrics are weaved with insightful excerpts from an elderly man, who provides a glimmer of hope. Listen to “Skegee” below.
