Dice Raw "WAKE UP (prod. Khari Mateen)"

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Fresh off his stint at the piano bar, Dice Raw is back on his rapper shit right here. Dice hooks up with frequent collaborator and fellow The Roots affiliate, Khari Mateen, for this new jawn, "WAKE UP." Couldn't have picked a better day to release this song, Dice explains: "Black people have been fighting for the freedoms and privileges enjoyed by people of ALL colors since Crispus Attucks, without fair or equal representation. Law and order are now code words for 'get them niggas.' Churches, temples, synagogues, the media, police, gun shops, law firms and more will win off of #TrayvonMartin. Don't believe me - just watch! We released 'WAKE UP' as a call-to-action to our brothers, sisters and allies in the struggle." And they gave Ollie North a TV show... Dice's new album, JIMMY's BACK, will be out August 4th.
