It’s so refreshing when rappers have real world perspectives on current events. Seeing videos and interviews like this one often remind my why I love hip-hop. It’s not just the music; the artists behind the music are sometimes some pretty interesting people that we can learn a lot from. Tupac, Nas and Lupe Fiasco (despite his wannabe “activist” antics) are just a couple of the guys that say real shit about real issues in the world. I never took this next guy as unintelligent or anything, but still his words of “wisdom” came to me as a bit of a shock.
David Banner in an interview with Black Enterprise Magazine spoke about his true feelings on the murder of Trayvon Martin. I swear, after listening to this I wanted to sing the hallelujah chorus. Finally! Someone see’s what’s really going on and spoke up about it! Thank ya! Ok, back to the interview…
Banner took a little under five minutes to drop some real knowledge on his listening crowd about the real issues surrounding the murder of Trayvon Martin. This tragedy goes beyond the lines of race and it for damn sure wasn’t that hoodie that got innocent Trayvon killed. Watch the video below and tell me what you think.
Lastly, I know its random, but I borrowed a pic from my Pinterest that I thought was equally fitting. How sad but true is that shit? (the picture)
