There were four days in April last year that changed Black Culture forever. Kobe Bryant dropped 60 in his last NBA game after 20 years as a Laker on April 13th. The Purple Icon, Prince, passed away on April 21st and the world is still in shock. On April 22nd, Birdman appeared on The Breakfast Club for two minutes, giving us a monumental radio moment that hasn’t taken place since the glory days of HOT 97. Finally, on April 23rd, Beyoncé released the hour long HBO film to her most outspoken, controversial, empowering album, Lemonade.
“All Night” produced by Diplo, Henry Allen, and Beyonce is the redemption act of the film about mistrust and heartbreak. The “SpottieOttieDopaliscious” sample is alive and well as the Beehive’s fave brings it home to a house that has its problems but also possesses a strong foundation. Happy Lemonade Day!
