With all the Hook Filled Songs & Trivial Singers & Rappers Out there on The Radio…We Still got Some Artists Laying down Profound Lyrics & Music.

As long as these Djelis/Griots/Oral Historians/Timeless Lyricists Remain/We won’t go Insane/–d Slavemaster thought we was 100% cut off/–dude done lost his brain/–Mother Africa’s children, breaking ball & chain.

Listen to John Legend & The Roots version of “Little Ghetto Boy.”
*(Original Version–Donny Hathaway–1970’s)

Listen to Black Thought of The Roots drop them bars/–putting healing balm on scars, kicking down mental bars, we getting ours/–QuestLove, on d Drums, hitting wt Power, Rhythm, Freedom/–pulling minds 4rm slums/–John Legend, coming in wt harmony in his voice/–Break Free Little Ghetto Boy, No Choice/–Mother Africa Ain’t Forgot You/–Lyrical Freedom Fighters Coming after You.
