Portland-raised rapper Aminé talks about how the racial tensions he felt in his hometown are reflected in his latest album, Limbo.

“Growing up as a Black kid in Portland, Oregon, there just isn’t a lot of us there so we never felt like we were welcomed in with open arms or felt comfortable walking around in my own city, which I love dearly to my heart,” Aminé says.
