    listening to this for the first time in awhile, I find myself thinking about the course of the nation...and how our attitude and demeanor move and groove with the tenor of our music. going back to the music of the seventies, you saw a deep love within our communities. in the eighties, and the onset of rap/hiphop, you saw a consciousness emerge, as many rappers--like KRS-1--tried to educate us/wake us up to our situation. since gangsta rap took us by storm--understanding that initial gangsta rap was about us against the system--glamourizing the in-fighting, the bling-bling, and "it's all about me," there has been a deterioration of that love...of that unity...of that "we are one" mentality.

    How do we counter that?
