Young Slay - Modern Society

Something new from rapper Young Slay. Here’s what the rapper has to say about the “Modern Society” track.

Perhaps we don’t want to face the ugly truth that racism, and classicism are real in America. So, anyway I hope you enjoy this track. Any feedback is always welcomed. I want to thank you for your time, and please don’t forget to share.
