How ALLBLACK and Kenny Beats made the best football-themed rap project of the year
The cover of ALLBLACK's very first mixtape, 2015's No Shame, features a picture of his father kneeling in a Pop Warner football uniform. He wears the number 22 on his jersey, symbolizing the East Oakland street where ALLBLACK grew up. Football has always been a big part of the rapper's life, from playing as a kid to coaching as an adult.In his rap career, ALLBLACK has adopted the sport's intricacies as an often-used metaphor to talk about struggles in the streets.
