Watch Joyner Lucas’ powerful ‘I’m Not Racist’ video (and then watch it again)


Studio 52 is a community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.

Usually we here at Vanyaland we have something to say about anything and everything. But right now, we’re going to shut the fuck up and kindly direct you to this new video from Joyner Lucas, the Worcester rapper who has dead-on tackled race relations in America through his powerful new video for “I’m Not Racist.”

It’s not an easy watch, but it’s an important one, and one everyone should absorb.

It’s already racked up more than 1.5 million views on Facebook after a few short hours, and the YouTube numbers are rising as well. Meanwhile, Lucas is up for three 2017 Boston Music Awards, including Artist of the Year and Album of the Year (for 508-507-2209).

Give the man every award after this.
