There is too much going on in this country right now to ignore and forget. I'm concerned about my safety, freedom, well-being and that of those around me. We have a fundamental problem here in America that transcends any one particular issue, whether it be gun-control, economics, foreign affairs or whatever. I don't believe it can be fixed by pointing fingers, holding trust in elected officials or even through prayer. We need to change ourselves. I'm nowhere near the person I should be or want to be. We each have the ability to offer solutions to our own problems. Unfortunately, this song is all I have for now.
On this episode of the Sum'n To Say podcast we are joined by the incomparable DJ Wally Sparks to talk about his roots here in Atlanta and his epic R&B party The Groove. Wally also opines about the nature of "fickle" music fans. Is NYC still the mecca of hip-hop? Can meccas move? We dive into that topic as well. Also, Soulja Boy is a political activist (not really, but kinda?)
