Femcee Bates Re-releases ‘For Colored Folk’ Album | @bates_stl


Colored Folk

Three months following the release of her summer album Strange Woman, Bates reminds everyone of the roots that ground her with the re-release of her critically acclaimed project For Colored Folk.

Released in 2016, For Colored Folk has been highly praised among Hip-Colored FolkHop lovers and fighters for justice alike. Inspired by social issues that affect the black community including the murder of Mike Brown Jr. by the Ferguson PD, homophobia and sexism – Bates attacks the intersectional problems and challenges the views and beliefs of her listeners, making For Colored Folk her most hard-hitting and direct album to date!

Hailed by the Riverfront Times Newspaper as “a navigation through spiritual, social and political minefields— a crossroads of intersectional issues that she attacks head-on while aiming straight for the gut,” with “a brash vibe that respects the time and intelligence of her peers and fans alike”, For Colored Folk is a concept album like none other; resonating with anyone exhausted of the racial, social and political injustices plaguing the country.
