Imagine living in the pre-war United States as a slave, and you saw Harriet Tubman in the news papers EVERYDAY, rappin’ about all the illest shit she acquired up north and saying slick shit like “y’all should get free like me, I’m richer than y’all”
The white man own you nigga’s souls, he controls how you treat your own people.

Harry Belafonte gave up a platinum music career to help black people
He had the FIRST platinum record
Gave up being an entertainer to be an activist
Jay-z would NEVER do this
Without giving away too much I sacrificed financial security and local celebrity because my brothers and sisters NEEDED me.
I could’ve took shit a whole nother way, but I thought what type of message am I sending to people who believed in me. What message am I sending out about blacks and violence.
Not retaliating to ignorant niggas who are currently “winning” (by ignorant nigga standards) was the best thing that happened to me.
Cost me a nervous breakdown, therapy, almost filing for bankruptcy, and tons of relationships…I was broken down to a molecular level. But NOW I possess something they can never take from me. And I plan to share it with the world. Most importantly my black people.
It’s comin’, stay tuned…almost 2 years in the making.
