Black Griff “Trials We Face (Smile)”

New York rapper, Black Griff just dropped his new single, “Trials We Face (Smile).” The song was released in light of MF Doom‘s death; Griff said “I have dozens of tracks that will never see the light, but after learning of DOOM’s passing last night I decided enough was enough. You cannot let insecurities and fear hold you, as life passes you by.” It is good that Griff didn’t let them hold up “Trials We Face (Smile).” Featuring soaring strings of a sped-up soul sample, the instrumental has a UGK “Int’l Players Anthem” feel but the rapping is a little more defiant. With the repeated chorus of “I got a smile on my motherfucking face,” Griff is looking to take no prisoners.
