Today Ric Wilson releases  “We Love Us,” from his forthcoming Soul Bounce EP.  “When I wrote “We Love Us” I was thinking of the African Diaspora” Ric lamented to Mass Appeal.  “I was thinking about how black life is compared to stolen materialistic items every day.  I was thinking about how we live in an anti-black world and are thought to hate ourselves and thought about how we love us and are still here through everything. Black is beautiful and powerful; not a curse but magic.”
