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.

Revisiting James Baldwin's writing from decades past, this documentary shows just how little the Black experience in the US has changed.

Haitian filmmaker Raoul Peck's masterpiece, I Am Not Your Negro, was released in 2016, but is based on James Baldwin's last unpublished book, Remember This House. I am not Your Negro captures Baldwin's reflections on the assassinations of his three close friends, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X and Medgar Evers, in the height of the civil rights movement. It also draws on Baldwin's lived experiences as a Black man in America who lived from 1924-1987 and his active writing career that spanned over four decades.
