Shane Eagle Drops a New Song ‘BLACK’ From Upcoming Mixtape ‘Dark Moon Flower’

Shane Eagle releases a new song accompanied by a music video.

Shane Eagle announced a new mixtape earlier this week. Titled Dark Moon Flower, the project features the likes of Nasty C, Santi, Bas, Lute, Kota The Friend, PatricKxxLee, J-Tek, Resarn, Caleborate and TheMind.


Today, the young South Africa released the mixtape's opening song "BLACK." Shane Eagle talks his ish over a mean bassline and 808s. He tells you he prefers to pray at the crib instead of church.

In the video, as usual, Shane Eagle is on his own. The video is as ominous as the song—it's shot in black and white, and is made friendlier to the eye with slight visual effects.




Dark Moon Flower is Shane Eagle's third project, a follow-up to December 2018's Never Grow Up. The rapper's debut album Yellow was released in 2017.

Shane Eagle has had a massive year. Never Grow Up and the single "Let it Flow" were certified gold, and the rapper joined Bas on the Dreamville rapper's Milky Way Tour.

With a new project that has a line-up as fears as this one, his year is poised to get better.

Watch the music video for "BLACK" below and stream the song underneath.

Pre-order/pre-save Dark Moon Flower below. It arrives on the 16th of October.

The Year Is 2020 & the Future of Nigeria Is the Youth

We discuss the strength in resolve of Nigeria's youth, their use of social media to speak up, and the young digital platforms circumventing the legacy media propaganda machine. We also get first-hand accounts from young creatives on being extorted by SARS and why they believe the protests are so important.

In the midst of a pandemic-rife 2020, the voices of African youth have gotten louder in demand for a better present and future. From structural reforms, women's rights, LGBTQ rights, and derelict states of public service, the youths have amplified their voices via the internet and social media, to cohesively express grievances that would hitherto have been quelled at a whisper.

Nigerian youth have used the internet and social media to create and sustain a loud voice for themselves. The expression of frustration and the calls for change may have started online, but it's having a profound effect on the lives of every Nigerian with each passing day. What started as the twitter hashtag #EndSARS has grown into a nationwide youth revolution led by the people.

Even after the government supposedly disbanded the SARS (Special Anti-Robbery Squad) unit on the 10th of October, young Nigerians have not relented in their demands for better policing. The lack of trust for government promises has kept the youth protesting on the streets and online.
