No it isn't reggae but it is protest music at it's finest.

I viewed this first thing Sunday morning, before the sun came up. It rocked and shocked me all day. Indelible imagery.

This is message music at it's finest. People can say a lot of things about "this generation" but they got to give it up when you see someone doing BIG things. This cat is a house on fire right now.

Ninja, I have become the coolest old man at work because I sent that video you posted to all the youngsters here. Thanks smiling bouncing smiley

But I say... Some Never Even Plant yet want to Reap,
If you run, be careful, try to look before you leap;
Took a little walk from my Vineyard...
Now I'm on my own
Now I'm left alone..

Donald Glover should be awarded the Nobel Prize. They set a precedent by giving it to Bob Dylan ... How bout Childish next for:

Quote
Isaiah 11:6

"a Child shall lead the way"

Womb/man in the Hills to Aristotle, Socrates, Hillel, Voltaire, Rousseau, Sojourner Truth, Frederick Douglass, Yabby You, Paulo Coelho, Donald Glover & a cast of thousands

Nobel Prize?! C’mon, he’s not saying anything others have not said before...

True, but like Issac Newton said: "We stand on the shoulders of the greats who came before us."

Would an NAACP award work for you? For example, IMO one of the greatest all times movie ever made: 'Life of a King' with Cuba Gooding Jr., based on an inspirational true story, got dissed by Hollywierd. Not even a Grammy mention, but it was nominated for the NAACP award.

Perhaps it's a segue off the Childish Gambino topic (but maybe in a roundabout way it's very on topic) to ropes-in Cuba Jr.'s dad Cuba Gooding Sr. (RIP) with his 1972 hit song "Every Body Plays the Fool" - The Main Ingredient




When nuff of our evolutionary human race evolves the humility to realize our present foolish monkey business is headed toward total destruction, as Donald Glover is so powerfully teaching thru his music & video ... then hopefully we will find a way thru these perilous times so our children's children will still have a place to call home on this planet Earth.

Just a question.. but do most Nobel peace prize winners say anything different from those who come before them? Seems like doing/saying something that shows that violence is the norm but not the answer might be a pre requisite to winning.. Also, context (timing) has a lot to do with it.. just today.. another 8 (at least) High School kids got blasted and killed in Texas.. don't worry though.. This is America.. by the weekend the Royal Wedding will be dominating the headlines..
