Compton artist Channel Tres is about to take control of all summer BBQs with the release of his forthcoming EP titled Black Moses. Yesterday, he gave us a taste of what to expect from the project in the form of his funky new single, "Sexy Black Timberlake." The accompanying visual for the track sees Channel Tres taking viewers around his stomping grounds in South Central California.
"As a black male I’ve experienced being vilified or objectified depending on what I was wearing or what I was doing," he told The FADER. "'Sexy Black Timberlake' is me being objectified as a sex object for my skin color. The production was inspired by 'The Chronic' mixed with the west coast dance music I’ve been creating."
Black Moses drops on August 2 via GODMODE. Stream the full song in the video above and scroll down for a full list of upcoming tour dates:
