Lyrical acrobat and one half of the rap duo Blackalicious, GIFT OF GAB, teamed up with NPR Music to premiere a new video for “The Gentrification Song”, the 5th track off his newest EP Rejoice! Rappers Are Rapping Again. Through the track, Gift of Gab hopes to shed a light on how gentrification is affecting people across the country, including personal friends and family. Gab explained exclusively to NPR, “I know people who are sleeping in their cars. This cab driver told me he was paying $1,300 a month for rent. He got a letter that told him in two months it would rise to $3,600 a month. And just witness all the tent cities all over the country popping up.”
