Independent New York rapper Mysonne is embracing his (growing) voice as a representative of the Hip Hop community’s fight against social injustice.

The Bronx-born artist has released “T.H.U.G.S.”, a new track expressing his frustrations at how wider society views young Black men across the nation.
