Lalah Hathaway: Little Ghetto Boy
With split-screen imagery and touching messaging, Lalah Hathaway delivers a re-packaging of the timeless hit, ‘Little Ghetto Boy” – a soul-wrenching ballad first sung by her father, Donnie Hathaway in 1972.
The agitation faced in today’s society rings through the track as Lalah cruises the streets of California, singing about life’s ills. The tempo caresses the soul, while the lyrics offer truth and a yearning for things to get better.
“The truth of the song rings the same today as it did forty years ago, Lalah told Vibe. “The fact I can deliver this truth with the same conviction my father felt all those years ago is extraordinary.”
