Durham, NC – Little Brother announced their triumphant return earlier this week with a surprise album called May The Lord Watch. Like clockwork, Phonte and Rapper Big Pooh have shared a video for “Black Magic (Make It Better)” to coincide with the project’s release.
Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Focus… and featuring guest vocals from Madison McFerrin, the track is described as a “love letter to the beauty and resilience of black people.”
The visual itself was shot in their home state of North Carolina and is dedicated to the “late” fictional character Percy Miracles.
“We wrote ‘Black Magic (Make It Better)’ to inspire,” Rapper Big Pooh says in a press release. “No matter your personal struggle or where you are starting from in life, waking up gives you another shot at being better than you were the day before. We wanted a visual that felt organic and represented us and showed love to the city that birthed Little Brother: Durham North Carolina.”
Throughout the video, Phonte and Pooh effortlessly showcase their top-notch lyricism, reminding their fans why they were so sorely missed.
