For those unaware of the definition of Conscious Hip-Hop or Rap:
In fact, most conscious Hip-Hop is kept in the Underground world being shared by avid listeners via social media or using the theory of tell ten with morphs into thousands heard, over a well-crafted marketing campaign.
Yet, below is one piece of Conscious Hip-Hop we suggest our readers at Independent Underground News & Talk listen to, and listen to each word shared in this song.
Well, the ironic nature of connection between Garner, Brown and Martin murders are indeed something that has obviously has got lost on the larger discussion. Eric Garner killed by Choke Hold for selling loose cigarettes in front of a store.
Mike Brown (according to killer cop Darren Wilson) shot to death for being a "suspect" in a "strong-arm robbery" over cigarattos at a store. Trayvon Martin shot to death coming from a store after buying Skittles and Ice Tea.
The connections between these horrible murders has been lost in the conversation, until now.
