I’m not sure if I have had this as the Real Hip Hop: Song of the day before, but if I have; oh well. After the Supreme Court decision for execution of Troy Davis, I could not help but think of this song. Ironically, I thought of the song for, not for the lyrics, but the mid-song interlude that reads:
“It’s time for us as a people to start making some changes. Let’s change the way we eat, let’s change the way we live, and let’s change the way we treat each other. You see the old way wasn’t working so it’s on us to do what we gotta do to survive”
I had to take you back to 1998.
