“Oh say, can you see? My people prayed, take a knee”
Last year rapper Quavo received over 9,000 signatures on Change.org after a dedicated fan started a petition requesting that he add a verse to the American National Anthem. According to TMZ, Quavo had no intentions to remake the United States official National Anthem ‘Star Spangled Banner.’
However, he did express interest in making a new National Anthem for all races. Quavo told TMZ,
“There’s a lot going on behind the national anthem. I would love to do it, but i wanna do a 2017 national anthem for both people and all races. Something that’s representing now. Something that representing the modern day national anthem.
On January 15th, Quavo shared a snippet of a song titled “Culture National Anthem” which fulfilled his promises.
In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. day, Huncho released the snippet alongside a short video featuring footage of Dr. King. He references former 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s police brutality protests during the National Anthem at NFL games. The track was produced by Stacc Da Greatest, Will Major, and Figurez and will appear on Migo’s upcoming album Culture II which drops on Friday, Jan,26th.
