Spurred by the recent deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile at the hands of police officers, Brooklyn rapper Bajan Sparrow (formerly known as Spa77ow) sends a video message calling for people to “come together smarter… not just black – anybody in our urban communities. We gotta start treating police like they’re criminals. If they ask you to get on the floor, do what they say. Don’t fight. Handle all the other s–t later, whether they were right or wrong. It’s not worth losing your life over.” Sparrow’s last release was “Down Syndrome” (stream), from his forthcoming mixtape God Don’t Like Ugly. Sparrow was featured in XXL’s Freshmen issue 2015 (read his XXL interview). He collaborated in 2014 with Tone Trump (listen to “Virgin Remy” on Soundcloud) and his most recent visual was for the “Stone Cold Stunna Freestyle” (Youtube). In 2009 he toured with Nike as an opening act for LeBron James’ “More Than A Game” Movie promo tour, did the Toy Drive tour in 2015 through the East Coast, and has had over 10 sold out shows in NYC at venues such as Webster Hall , Coco 66, Armarachi Lounge. Sparrow recently released one single from GDLU (listen to “Vyvanse”), and freestyled over N.W.A.’s “Dopeman” (watch the music video).
