Rapper Derek Luh Addresses Police Brutality In "Bad Boy" Record
Sure, Los Angeles may be on the top of everyone’s list when it comes to favorite hip-hop, but there is someone looking to add his name to it. Derek Luh is finally ready to share his collection of songs that sounds like him, as opposed to like others in the game. With such atrocities like the shooting in Milwaukee, or in Baltimore, or in Baton Rouge — Derek Luh has channeled his angst and anger for police brutality into the song, “Bad Boy,” which is a track that is very focused, mature and thought out.
Produced by his long time collaborator, J.Cuse, “Bad Boy” is fueled by the pangs caused by police brutality and the concern of the matter being reduced to a meme or hashtag. Even though he is still growing as a man and as an artist, “Bad Boy” is poignant, backed by ill production and serves as the canvas of which Derek paints colorful lyrics upon. The West Coast MC has been putting the finishing touches on a new EP, which will be turned in in the coming weeks, but look out for his performance in Austin, Texas (Aug. 24) and Portland (Aug. 27).
