“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
