Today is Malcolm X’s birthday and we cannot stop playing this new tune by Mickey Factz. “Detroit Red,” produced by Aleem Bilal, has been out for a few days now, calling attention to the bornday of one of Civil Rights’ most revered leaders.

Factz, who is fresh from a self exile, stacks audio-biographical bar upon audio-biographical bar, walking us through the life of the late El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz with a cleverly laid series of true-to-life verses–Alex Haley would be proud.

For the Bronx born Factz, conceptual pieces like “Detroit Red” are his strong suit and contribute to a signature style that we have grown to love ever since he was featured as a XXL Freshman. The song is a leak from Factz’s upcoming project, 740 Park Avenue.
