Maka - Boxed In (The Story Of O.J Cover)

The Story Of O.J. is a clear standout on Jay Z's innovative 4:44 album. The song which samples Nina Simone's classic, Four Women, touches on racism and financial freedom.

Her version titled "Boxed In" talks about everything a black person should be proud of and it's soothing to the ears.
