Eligh – Pac-Man

blame it on Shake August 19, 2014

In response to the unfortunate and troubling events going on in Ferguson, Eligh drops a track from his upcoming 80Hrtz project, entitled “Pac-Man.”

Says the Living Legend:

“I wrote this song for my upcoming album, 80Hrtz many months ago. This album isn’t finished yet, but I can’t sit by and not share this song with you all right now. The paranoia, bigotry, ignorance, and gang mentality being displayed by police over and over again in this country makes me nauseous.

I wrote this song about being ignorant to my friend’s feelings of fear, and hatred towards the police, being the one white kid in the group most of the time. I sampled the movie “Colors” where the main officer was nicknamed “Pac-Man” by the neighborhood folks he terrorized.

This song is dedicated to every person angered and saddened by the events unfolding in Ferguson. An American city, under siege by its own Police force. Black people under siege, once again. Racism, alive and well. My love to everyone in pain over this madness.”
