VIDEO: CAZWELL, CHANEL JOLE, TRACE LYSETTE – TASER IN MY TELFAR BAG

In honor of Transgender Day Of Remembrance, which is on November 20, out rapper Cazwell joins forces with rappers Chanel Jole and Trace Lysette on the catchy new bop Taser in my Telfar Bag.

The track reminds us how fierce trans women such as themselves have to move through a world that may not entirely accept trans women as being a part of it.

What I love about the song is that it’s clearly a Cazwell track, but he takes a backseat to let these women shine not only lyrically, but ferociously in the music video.

Speaking of the video, I also loved that at the end, viewers are encouraged to donate to Trans Defense LA.

Every year I seem to report on the deaths of trans women, with 2021 turning out to be the deadliest year for trans people in the United States, with at least 45 trans and nonbinary people being murdered this year, surpassing last year’s record of 44.

“When a trans woman walks down the block it comes with a LOT. This one is for the overly aggressive men who do too much when you’re just tryna get from point A to B,” Lysette wrote on her Instagram. “And the women who used to spill my tea to the trade on my way to the bodega all those years on Nostrand Ave. in Brooklyn…and guess what? Y’all did me a favor because the trade lived anyway…tuh!!”

She added: “Most importantly this one is for my T girls. Please protect yourself out there. It’s not a game. Unbothered femme queen pussy till I die.” Amen Trace!

“As a Black trans woman, this is much more than a song to me,” Jole wrote on her own Instagram. “After being recently involved in an armed robbery/hate crime this summer for being unapologetically me, I had to rep for my girls & let these hoes know you can get zappppped up!”
