Definintely coming off of the Trayvon Martin murder and the subsequent acquittal of George Zimmerman...the world is tired of it. It's too much murder going on it these streets.
It's not only Black people either. It's too many brothers being shot in these streets whether its by someone who looks like him OR someone who thinks he/she is above the law to commit murder.
Suave (of GPNYC fame) has put together a beautiful piece produced by Prospek titled No Justice No Peace.
That's pretty much where I'm at with it.
Open your eyes mane and check it out.
"No Justice No Peace" was written by Suave while on his European tour of 2012. After hearing of the alarming news of Trayvon Martin's death while in Amsterdam, he discussed the issue of racial profiling in a studio session with artists and producers from not only Holland, but Germany, Curacao, Suriname, and N. Africa. They all shared stories of racial profiling experiences they've been apart of around the world. The result of that conversation was Suave reflecting and writing this heartfelt call to action for not only the African-American community, but the human community all over the globe. Accompanied by frequent collaborator, label mate, and producer, Prospek (@prospek), they call on the lyrical skills of buzzing DC hip hop artist Kam Royal (@kam-royal) to bring together this live instrumentation hip hop soul joint that will have people from all walks of life questioning who our real "oppressors" are.
