X-Ray calls for unity in new single “Live & Die In America”

Roslindale, Massachusetts, can be proud of its artists when it is those like X-Ray that lead the way. The resident rapper takes a stand and bares his soul in his latest single “Live & Die In America,” which comes during a time when the message deployed hits hardest. X-Ray flows with conviction, to a beat by Urban Nerd Beats that is both melancholic but uplifting at the same time. X-Ray does call in its lyrics for unity, for recognition of broken systems, and ultimately for a rediscovering of the human spirit that seems so faded right now. For a weekend of reflection, stream “Live & Die In America” below. - René Cobar
