Loyle Carner delivers a new track “Yesterday” on Madlib beat. The rapper is talking in this track about black identity today and in the past, while Madlib is providing a jazzy feel in the background.
“It’s no secret Madlib is my musical hero. I wrote this almost two years ago, but at first had trouble with clearing the sample and thought it would never see the light of day. It’s really just about what it is to be black and white, in a world where you pretty much have to be one or the other. It hurts the way I felt about my race back then is the same way I feel now. Nothing’s changed since my last entry, nothing’s changed since the last century”, said Loyle. “I hope that soon this song is nothing more than a reminder of a different time, and collectively we’re able to move forward to a time of more respect, acceptance and understanding.”
The song “Yesterday” came out with an official video directed by Carner alongside his brother Ryan (The Coyle-Larner Brothers).
