This past week, singer/producer Mike Posner shared what he, as a while male, has learned about being black in America. Growing up in Detroit, making hip-hop music, being close friends with Big Sean, Mike came to the conclusion that despite his background he has “no idea what it’s like to be black in America.” Because of this background, which differs a lot from the African-American artists making songs about race relations and police brutality in America, Mike’s new record ‘The Voice Of The Unheard’, provides a unique perspective of America in 2015.

“Last they night they killed a man and then they hid behind their laws. I noticed that my skin was the wrong color for my cause,” Posner sings in his power new track. Speaking on behalf of those with no voice, Posner’s new folk-inspired sound continues to be more personal than his music to date. Check out ‘The Voice Of The Unheard’ above.
