Watch UK rapper Dave Condemn “Racist” Boris Johnson in last nights scathing performance

A highlight of the evening was UK rapper Dave’s remake of his own song “Black.” From Pitchfork:

South London rapper Dave performed an incendiary version of his Psychodrama song “Black” at the BRIT Awards in London Monday night (February 18). In a new verse, he dove deep on matters of institutional racism, levelling allegations at prime minister Boris Johnson, the British media and its treatment of Meghan Markle, and the architects of the Windrush scandal, which saw thousands mistakenly classified as illegal immigrants.
