Lyric Michelle has released an inspiring new single that stands up for black woman with "Boot Straps"

Inspired by words of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X, "Boot Straps" heeds the struggle, strength, and visibility, or lack thereof, of black women.

Lyric Michelle fends off eye-roll worthy questions from newly sanctioned leftists and tears down double-edged masculine support with one bar, “I got your back, but who’s got mine?”

It’s tough and aggressive, but you can feel the delicate pain from which it derives. Known for fusing southern charm, a touch of poetry and a blast of ferocious lyricism, Lyric Michelle is pushing boundaries and opening doors for female emcees. “Boot Straps” is no exception.
