What many are calling "Much needed therapy and an artistic response, for what we are going through now as a generation and nation," "We Cant Breathe: Voice of the Voiceless," is a compilation of the worlds best talented artists. This instrument of change is inspired by the recent unfortunate events in Ferguson, Missouri, and the unfortunate deaths of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, and countless others who have died by the hands of those who have taken an oath to serve and protect.
They are all masters of the art of Spoken Word Poetry and Hip Hop music. This project is starring MTV Hip Hop Battle Champion Reignman aka Izzie Fareal, famous Underground Hip Hop Lyricist 'Dama Nilz,' R&B Soulstress Jeanette Berry, and a conscious hip hop blend by popular New York DJ Miranda Maxwell, not to mention the artwork of this project, professionally done by renowned artist "El Stabo." All including a plethora of other poets, musicians, and analysts, are discussing a range of topics stemming from police brutality, racial injustice, racial stereotypes and biases, inequality, media projection, social responsibility, racial profiling, and more.
There is a great quote that immediately came into mind as I gave every track a listen. "Always stand for what's right, even if your standing alone." The good folks at "The Arts & Music," (A&M) are standing for what is right.
