"Minneapolis" is a jazzy, politically-charged soul record brought to us by German rapper/singer JuJu Rogers and producer DAO. Bolstered by the soft moody tones, soulful textures, and choppy drum grooves, Rogers pours his all on wax as he pontificates on real-time issues ranging from systemic racism, police brutality, and the pervasive capitalistic society we live in. He also brings a distinct feel to the record with his Jamaican roots and fuses fiery raps with reggae melodic runs that hit the peak in the chorus section. He is joined by Chi-town emcee Mick Jenkins who adds his own unfiltered opinion on the current social climate.
"Minneapolis" sure is a brilliant insightful social commentary on wax and perfect for your mellow soul playlist. Rogers mentions that the brutal murder of George Floyd and the subsequent protests inspired him to write "Minneapolis." He also used some elements from the German Hard Rock band Scorpions' 1992 single "Winds Of Change" in the making of the song.
