From J. Cole: “Rest in Peace to Michael Brown and to every young black man murdered in America, whether by the hands of white or black. I pray that one day the world will be filled with peace and rid of injustice. Only then will we all Be Free.”
The homey Kiese Laymon over at Gawker put me on to this song “Stop And Frisk.” Young emcees spitting about socially relevant issues in an election year? I’m in. Listen to a tale of police and state-sponsored discrimination told from two very different sides of the spectrum. Then, share that wealth.
