Bobby Sessions releases powerful anti-police brutality anthem “Like Me”

Bobby Sessions

Dallas rapper Bobby Sessions made a huge impression on us at SXSW, partially because of his breathtaking performance of an anti-police brutality song that he dedicated to his cousin who was a victim of police brutality. Today he releases his debut single for Def Jam, “Like Me,” and I’m pretty sure this is that very song. Here’s what he says about it:

These days black lives have simply been reduced to hashtags. There’s often no time to grieve for our victims because another one of us gets killed shortly thereafter… but the pain of these tragedies is much deeper when it happens to your own family. I have been actively speaking out against the killing of unarmed black people by law enforcement ever since my cousin’s death … and I will continue to use my platform to speak out against a problem that negatively affects people all across the world that look like me.

It’s a very powerful song with some hints of Hell Can Wait era Vince Staples, but mostly it’s just more proof that Bobby is a force of his own. Listen below, along with a video where Bobby elaborates on the song’s message.

“Like Me” follows Bobby’s excellent 2017 album grateful. Bobby also recently revealed that he has a Killer Mike collaboration in the works.

We won't let the world forget your name. We all miss you G-Code. #SouthDallas #LikeMe
