Off SoulStice & SBe’s Beyond Borders LP.
As a Black man in America that’s also part of an interracial marriage, I’ve experienced my share of prejudice and bigotry. We’ve come far on issues of race, but still have a ways to go. However, at this stage in the game, I feel like we’ve got even farther to go on issues relating to same-sex relationships and marriages. Love is love…we should have gotten that, if nothing else, from the musical legacies of artists like Michael and Stevie. It’s not a “safe” move for a hip hop artist to show this kind of support for the GLBT community. But as an artist, I feel like it’s my job to challenge the status quo, not just play into it or step around it. To me, being revolutionary means fighting not just for you and yours but for any community suffering injustice. – SoulStice
