Back in 2018, Buddy liberated his long-awaited debut LP Harlan & Alondra, which saw 12 genre-bending tracks and additional appearances from Ty Dolla $ign, Snoop Dogg, Khalid, Guapdad 4000, and A$AP Ferg, the last of who appears on the hard-hitting and Afrocentric cut “Black.” Today, the Compton star delivers the sequel to that track, “Black 2,” which sees him continuing his love for his people:

“Everybody tryna get dreads and s***, but they ain’t African, all the light girls gettin’ the tan so they can darken they skin/

I’m sorry, it’s a black thing, I don’t give a f***, I said the s***, with the rhetoric, everybody wanna design something for Louis Vuitton/

Baby, it’s a black thing, blacked out in the backseat in the black Jeep listening to “Black” by me.../”

Given the current state of affairs, it’s a dope song to enjoy while pushing for change via social media or out in the streets during the protests.

In a relatively recent interview with Hypebeast, Buddy revealed that he’s currently working on the follow-up to Harlan & Alondra with his former label boss Pharrell Williams:

“Probably two, three months ago. I’m so in it, I don’t even know. Time is a crazy concept. I’m just trying to finish, you know? Last week it was me, Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo making music. I ain’t kick it with him since, you know – it’s been a minute. I hung out with him and Snoop Dogg, Kid Cudi. But we were working together. I was working with The Neptunes. That s***’s everybody’s dream. That’s probably the most exciting thing that happened to me. It was fire because the next day, Pharrell had to bounce because he’s busy. Then I told Chad to pull up. He pulled up and he was kicking it with me.”

Press play on “Black 2” with added commentary below. Given that “Black” served as the first single from Buddy’s debut, fans can be hopeful that more is on the way soon.
