Fresh off a Mass Appeal premiere, Passport Rav‘s “Delayed Flights” is that repeat-worthy, socially conscious banger many artists aim for, but don’t quite hit the mark. Laid over thoughtful production, the track opens with a legendary Mike Tyson soundbite, before proceeding to break it down on being black in America.
I’m feeling this one, as it keeps it real on what we as POC face on the daily, without coming across as overly preachy, corny or worse yet, depressing. “Delayed Flights” serves as the first single off Rav’s upcoming “Gentrified Snacks” EP, dropping later this year. In the meanwhile, catch the video above and tell me Passport Rav isn’t the truth!
