i love that bands like this hold a place in contemporary music, the music industry as is can seem altogether worthless at points and they come along and help restore my faith in music with intelligence.

Glad someone finally said that about Obama. Seems to me most people are oblivious to his questionable strategies in the middle east. Really I think a lot of people believe Obama wants to send all the troops home and thats not true at all.
This guy knows his stuff. I dont agree with everything he says but obviously he pays attention probably more than most musicians who go running thier mouth about polotics.

i always use to complain about rap and hip hop, repeating the same themes, rapping about pointless violence, drugs, whatever.. hearing people who are putting out a message and something with substance in the hip hop world is a sound for sore ears

Awesome interview. This quote totally kills it:

Quote:
Any genre suffers when it is graded purely on its commercial value, and I think especially with hip hop, there is a weird sort of distortion that has happened as a result of how and who it is marketed to. So if you have this art form that stems out of people of color in oppressed communities, it then later contorts to fit the wishes of more suburban audiences who are not in touch with that oppression on a daily level, then what they want to see is that stereotype, and the people marketing it want to sell it to them. At one point there was this study that said 70% of hip hop buyers were white suburbanites, and they have a place in it too, but if it is catering to the stereotype more than it is talking about life experience, you are going to get that distortion.
