JaRon Marshall’s “The Black Power Tape” Is A Soulful Remedy [Premiere]

JaRon Marshall explores feelings of rage, power, pride, and, ultimately, peace, throughout the project’s four tracks.
It’s easy to fall into the head-bobbing funk of “Last June,” the track that kicks off JaRon Marshall‘s The Black Power Tape. Then, the soulful croon of vocalist James Robinson comes in, uttering the names of people we’ve heard all year.

“Now Ahmaud is gone / George is gone / Breonna is gone / They never coming back home,” Robinson croons.

It’s a moment that encapsulates what Marshall’s project — which Okayplayer is premiering before its official release on Friday (September 25) — is about: exploring the myriad of emotions that come with being Black in America, all against a backdrop of soothing, soulful music.
