He has opened for various artists such as Scarface, 8 Ball & MJG, Big Krit, Paul Wall, Boosie Badazz and Webbie. And now he’s back with his some fresh music for his listeners.
Arkansas Bo’s newest single “Black Lives Don’t Matter” — ft. E-Dubb, Justin Paul, and Touda– tells the story of black men striving to overcome the struggles of their environment, the perils of police brutality, and corruption dividing their communities.
Arkansas Bo has a smooth flow over soulful melodies. He shares a story of his conflicts with corrupt police who treat him unjustly and remembering the fallen lives of Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, Oscar Grant, and Sean Bell.
The Arkansas emcee speaks up for the innocent people against misunderstanding America saying:
“It’s not about racism but f**k that I ain’t trying to hear it/ My skin can get me killed but your skin can get you privilege.” “F**k, all that marching and sanging and chitter-chatter/I stay strapped apparently because my black life don’t matter.”
