As the Garner family continues to mourn the loss of Eric Garner, his daughter Erica has decided to sing through the pain on a track dedicated to her father. On “This Ends Today,” Erica sings and raps for the first time to channel the hurt and anger she feels about the grand jury’s decision to not indict the NYPD officer who killed Garner with an illegal chokehold in July of 2014.
“To the grand jury I have a bone to pick/The decision that they made really made me sick,” rhymed Erica.
Eric Garner’s brother Steven Flagg, who serves as the song’s producer, also rapped with Erica on the track and had a few choice words for the grand jury.
“The grand jury lost their minds/it’s time for an appeal/If Eric was family they would know how it feels,” rapped Flagg.
The track features audio from Al Sharpton’s eulogy that he gave at Garner’s funeral. Lend your ear below.
