The Black Opera collective continues to drop joints from solo & group efforts. With TBO members Magestik Legend & Jamall Bufford dropping new material individually, this time the TBO collective joins forces to drop a new group material. In an era where the idea of justice remains in question, these questions linger as well: Who can you trust? Who can you believe in? Those questions apply to “the system” and to rap music in 2015. Sacred Cow is The Black Opera’s way of answering those questions.

First of all, I like to say Happy New Years to everyone….hope your New Years Eve was a meaningful one.
I made this beat on 11pm, December 31st & wanted to post this up here on our Beat Junkie blog. This is actually my last beat for 2014…I always try to make a beat before Midnight strikes on New Years Eve. I’ve been doing this ritual for the last 7 years…had to try to do it again & not break the streak…LOL!! I decided tp post the finished product on the morning of Jan. 1, 2015 on my soundcloud page. Hope you like my quick ditty. Happy New Years Everyone!
