Nipsey Hussle breaks it down.
In a recent stop with Ebro In the Morning over at Hot 97, Nip dropped off an interest tidbit when the conversation fell on Marvel’s Black Panther film. It’s no doubt that the cultural phenomenon has dominated conversation for weeks, and has added another layer to the topic of being Black in America and the significance of race throughout the globe.
“There are so many layers to that movie. It reminded me—and not in aesthetic, at all, but just in dynamic—it reminded me of Get Out,” he reasoned during the sit-down. He went on to reference a conversation between the primary characters of King T’Challa (portrayed by Chadwick Boseman) and Erik “Killmonger” Steven (played by Michael B. Jordan)
WARNING: This may or may no be a spoiler alert depending on how serious you are about that kind of thing.
“I remember there was a line he’s [Killmonger] saying, like, ‘I know the game of my oppressors’ […] and the other dude is like, ‘Nah, man, you took it and you’re using it against your own people.’ That’s so real. That’s what gang-banging is,” Nipsey notes.
