“I Can’t Breathe,” a powerful Hip-Hop anthem by Chasen Hampton (featuring REKS, Dutch ReBelle, and Antagon1st), which was released in March 2015, addresses the pain of a society that can no longer breathe, literally and figuratively speaking, as countless lives continue to be lost through senseless violence and brutality. In an exclusive interview for NewBlackMan (In Exile), Hampton spoke about the process of writing “I Can’t Breathe.”

"Through its undeniable “blackness” and the foregrounding of consumption, excess, and privilege (and black art) EMPIRE creates a world in which discussions of reparations are moot.  However, I would propose an implicit dialogue about reparations frames the series."-- +Simone Drake

"No one can deny black men's vulnerability in this society and the recent killings of Walter Scott and Eric Harris are painful reminders, but the fact is black women suffer the same injustices. Silence, motivated by sexism and patriarchy, in mainstream and black America is the only reason why it isn't widely acknowledged. And it's holding the fight for justice back."-- Kali Nicole Gross
