Dallas-based musician Frank Moka just dropped his single "Nation Time," which, in light of the political climate, will have you on the dance floor and ready to start a protest at the same time. The funky track, with its energetic percussion and smooth vocals, is a call to action for us to stop talking and start acting. The track is full of enough goodness that even Erykah Badu recently sang The Funky Knuckles percussionist's praises by eloquently saying, "He next."
The lyrics and the instrumentals band together and urge you to have the track on repeat just so you can catch all that Frank is giving, with him delivering these truthful lines in the middle of the song: "Then you say Black people don't stick together / That's why we ain't legit / But when a n***a scream black power / You say you ain't with that s**t / I know you wants to wave your hands in the air / Wave them motherf**kers all around like you just don't care / But don't wave too hard, y'all / It might get you shot, dog / In the parking lot, dog / By a crooked-ass cop, dog."
It looks like Frank is stepping into the spotlight a little more with his latest release, and we are ready to see and hear more. When he's not releasing solo tracks, he's rocking with The Funky Knuckles, who have worked with Badu, Beyoncé, Talib Kweli, Chris Dave and more. You can visit The Funky Knuckles website to see if the group's February tour will make a stop near you and Frank's Facebook page to keep up to speed with his solo releases. Until we get more from Mr. Moka, check out his latest groove "Nation Time" below.
