OG Maco made headlines when he appeared on the 2015 BET Awards red carpet wearing a t-shirt with all the names of young Black people killed by police brutality. We stopped OG Maco to discuss the importance of being conscious about society’s misgivings and his forthcoming debut Children Of The Rage.
