Sankofa – “Killer Mike for President”

“This is about the ugliness going on right here, right now. Thing is, at this point, right here is damn near everywhere. These are ugly times and, as an artist, I can lend my voice and speak my piece. Seeing Killer Mike’s speech made me think about leadership-what if our country was overseen by thoughtful, charismatic, intelligent, informed, humble enough to seek input individuals who had in mind the best interests of a country rather than a corporation? Thus this song Killer Mike For President. This song is free for download because what matters is message, not money. If anyone happens to name a price and buy it, I will take that money and donate it after researching where said money would most effectively be channeled. Through all the swirling mess our world is in, I know there are people who care. Call it my Anne Frank moment.

This is not a time for despair, this is a time for reflection and determining feasible action steps. Look at your leadership and ask yourself how they have helped or worsened this situation.” – Sankofa
