Talib Kweli hasn’t released solo music in a while but he’s back today with a new song titled ‘She’s My Hero’ which is dedicated to Bresha Meadows.
The Ohio teen was 14 when she took her father’s gun and shot him last July, putting an end to what relatives say were years of abuse visited upon her, her mother and her siblings. Her case has got a lot of attention and sympathy from supporters who say that the way she is being treated by the state is too typical for black survivors of violence.
Talib has also issued a detailed statement on why he chose to release this song. Stream and Read the full release below thereafter.
