Set in it's own lane of leadership, empowerment and unity. A movement of change. Parables of a young musical prophet. Penetrates your heart with truth of time, reminding one of their sole purpose. Sets your mind on point, reminds you that your not the only one in this struggle yet united we stand strong. Relation to not only the single, fathering, family man yet the single, mothering, family woman too. Also, speaks to the fatherless and motherless, educates, embraces and holds you tight by words of faith, determination and dreams to become reality. Movement of change, feel it in your soul, dances with your spirit and awakens your mind. Not about fame or power, it's about the people. Our journey of where we come from and where we're going. Rhymes of reality, speaking factual events of poverty; reminding of us of the power within destined for better days. Each beat different as the hearts it moves, when you close your eyes; you feel the hunger, pain, love and victory. Make you want to two step, look to the sky and smile, raise a glass in cheer and appreciate life on the daily. Music that grooves the soul and leaves your heart at a different beat.
