Check out Supastition's latest video, "Black Bodies"

Veteran Charlotte rapper Supastition unleashed another topical video this week. This time the NC-raised emcee addresses police brutality toward African-Americans, particularly the recent rash of shootings of Black men and boys by police officers.  Using stirring footage, lyrical quotes, and images from the #BlackLivesMatter movement, "Black Bodies" is another stunning piece from what may be the area's most underrated emcee.

The Praise-produced track appears on his latest album, "Gold Standard," which is available here as well as on iTunes and BandCamp.

Supastition, whose real name is Cam Moye, had a successful run in the mid-2000s but took a sabbatical from hip-hop for a couple years. He relaunched his music career as an independent artist addressing relatable, real world issues like family, work, the economy, and following an artistic calling while trying to make ends meet, and more controversial subjects.
