After digging into his vaults and gifting the world with the Big Daddy Kane-assisted, Oddisee-produced “The Fires Getting High,” Freddie Foxxx (or Bumpy Knuckles, you choose) breaks out another one from the archives.
“Can I Get A Break?!?” actually appeared on his Street Triumph Mixxxtape from 2006, but now we get the full, mixed version.
Thought it was time to dig back into the archives and pull something that was fitting to the emotion of the people. The subject matter never changes in these types of songs until the condition changes in our neighborhoods across the world, even then it will be a historic memory in our lives reflected in songs forever. Sometimes the frustration of injustice just grabs you by the heart and squeezes and you just want to scream “CAN I GET A BREAK?!?!? Where are the leaders that want to really help and not just line their pockets? Let’s not destroy our own communities but stand strong and protect the seniors and babies. Enjoy.
