“Somethin’ Ain’t Right” is a powerful, politically charged new single from Brooklyn emcee Teflon and his go-to producer, Jazimoto. It perfectly captures the state of our country as a whole, particularly how systemic racism is being unveiled for the entire world to see.
The track highlights the widespread division in the U.S. and how racism has been at the root of it all. You can see it clearly in numerous current events including the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, and most recently the storming of the U.S. Capitol that was egged on by President Trump.
The “Somethin’” that’s not right? White supremacy. And Teflon takes it to task with thoughtful, honest lyricism that portrays the tension and frustrations of being Black in America. Making it sound even more powerful is the production from Jazimoto, who blends vocal samples with crushing drums to capture Tef’s passion.
“Somethin’ Ain’t Right” is available now through all digital retailers and streaming platforms. And be sure to check for Tef’s previous comeback single, “No Fake Love” which is also produced by Jazimoto.
