With the deaths of Alton Sterling & Philando Castile once again bringing up the notion of police brutality against black and brown bodies, Killa Kyleon & Jack Freeman take to the booth for “What Do You See?”.

“Dr. King had a dream, you can’t tell me this it,” Kyleon raps on the Chris Rockaway produced track. “I’m sorry Martin, but I’m with Marvin cause this ain’t livin’.”

Kyleon’s two verses, one speaking on the shooting of blacks being killed by the police and the second upset about black lives getting killed at the hands of black lives display the mental gymnastics blacks face every day. “Do black lives only matter during hate crimes? When blacks take another black life, you should hate crime.”

Stream Jack Freeman & Killa Kyleon’s “What Do You See?” below. Freeman wrote a letter on the track and why he felt it necessary that he and Kyleon make it. You can read that below as well.

This couldn’t have come at a more pertinent time. Through the perils we face on a daily basis, and the blatant disregard of the well-being of many oppressed, frustrated, and exhausted human beings, came a concept. The concept I’ve developed is a song entitled “What Do You See?”. I am now merely providing a platform for artists to speak their minds via, This concept. “What Do You See” is a collaborative effort between myself and many of my artist friends who have something to say, whatever it may be. What I plan to do is have separate artists write their own version of this song, and put them out as they come along. I have a list of artists already on board to contribute their views to the movement. Today is the start of said movement with the collaboration done with Killa Kyleon.
