A self-described "angry black boy who's lucky enough to talk about it," McKinley Dixon found his voice through rap. The Richmond native's debut mixtape, 2016's Who Taught You To Hate Yourself?, tells the story of a young boy inundated by the harsh realities of police brutality, gang violence and self-hatred after witnessing a drive-by murder in his neighborhood. It's a fictionalized tale reflective of a particular kind of black experience.” - Rodney Carmichael, NPR
