We've covered Dax before - he's one of the top rising stars in hip hop right now. Since releasing seminal track "Dear God" at the end of last year, he continues to grow his fanbase with razor-sharp lyrics and an emotional touch. His music is from the heart, visceral, and intense.

"BLACK LIVES MATTER" is meant to bring everyone together during these tough times. Dax says about it: this is a "song I made for what's going on in the world that is about bringing people together and not tearing them apart. It is US against racism."

It is a simple and important message: the search for an end to bigotry and systemic oppression starts with finding love, one heart at a time. In the words of Martin Luther King - Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Nobody is born racist, man it's something you learn
deep-rooted in your brain from the day of your birth
I think it's time that we repair all of these bridges that we burned
And let love out of our hearts onto the cheats we've turned
Spread love, show love, let's get rid of this curse
Don't wait for anyone to act man, you go first
400 years wasted, let's get rid of this hurt
Because that's the only way we'll ever see peace on earth

This song is featured on our Hip Hop playlist.
