The #DontMuteDC movement prompted locals to emphasize the significance of go-go music and politicians to take action. Now, a Prince George’s county artist crafted a song about it.

In a new hit called “Can’t Lose the Soul,” Priest Da Nomad sings about the impact gentrification is having on some of the District’s neighborhoods.

“In a surge of paper thin condos, pop up breweries, pretentious bars and coffee shops, there seems to be a systemic plan to replace the history and culture of African Americans in the Nation’s Capitol, without a trace,” the song’s YouTube description says.

The music video was filmed near U Street and makes the point to “all new comers to DC that Chocolate City will not be erased!”
