Salaam Remi has recruited a solid roster of assists for his latest video, including Busta Rhymes, Black Thought, Doug E. Fresh, and Mumu Fresh for their collab track “No Peace.” The video is directed by Salaam Remi and New D4y Jovi and shows the strength in numbers will be the key to continue the fight for justice. On the song, Busta comes in with his verse unapologetically going at the force who is sworn to protect, but does the complete opposite:
I got so much trouble on my mind, huh. Look at all you little hanging with us. All this police, it’ll really hit us. N***as really got a job where it’s okay to kill us? Fuck that shit now. N***a hit and talk, it’s strict now. Don’t get caught up in the glitch now. We here to stick the fuck up in that bitch now. You hangin’ with us, do not try to switch now. You ain’t part of the fabric or the stitch now. Fuck your systеmatic oppression, sit down. Like you could still hit me with your littlе whip now.
In January, Salaam Remi unleashed project titled Do It For The Culture 2, a 25-track body of work that the producer essentially described as an “emptying of his hard drive.” That release acted as a sequel to 2016’s Do It For The Culture. Following that, fans then got to see new socially charged singles from Remi, including “Say It Loud (Everybody Black Re-Flip)” with CeeLo Green, “Home Vacation (FamilyOverEverything)” with Mack Wilds, “Comin’ Outta The Rain” with Bilal, “Black Love” with Teedra Moses and D-Nice, and “Is It Because I’m Black” with Black Thought, Syleena Johnson, Anthony Hamilton, Green, and Stephen Marley. Those tracks eventually culminated into Salaam Remi’s album Black On Purpose.
Via press release, Salaam Remi further explained the album’s meaning:
“We couldn’t gather in the way we were used to when we needed each other most... Now we are more than likely going to be in for another round of quarantine and we will need each other and music more than ever. ... We were black before the election and we will be black after the election.”
