“I believe there will ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those doing the oppressing. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice and equality for everyone and those who want to continue the system of exploitation. I believe that there will be that kind of clash, but I dont think it will be based on the color of the skin.”—Malcolm X (via secrets0ciety) (via likealeopard) (via lmntal)
It’s interesting looking at message board response. A lot of people draw thick lines in the sand. Many of our old fans are quick to say we’re lost, that we fell off. The main complaint for those folks is that we aren’t putting out things in the vein of what we used to, which is to say hip hop. The funny thing is, when I look back at our 2009 release schedule, I see more rap than we’ve released in years, along with music that’s different from our beginnings.
Well, I wish I was in New Orleans I can see it in my dreams arm-in-arm down Burgundy a bottle and my friends and me hoist up a few tall cool ones play some pool and listen to that tenor saxophone calling me home and I can hear the band begin “When the Saints Go Marching In” by the whiskers on my chin New Orleans, I’ll be there
