Turnup Tuesday: Kanye West – BLKKK SKKKN HEAD

Stop all that coon shit, early morning cartoon shit/

This is that goon shit, fuck up ya whole afternoon shit/

The energy captured by the angst and frustration in this song was fully lit all over America in 2014, coming to a full combustion in Ferguson.  It continues to burn this week a year later on the streets of Baltimore.  In the future, when somebody makes a movie about the general civil unrest of the last year – I doubt there will be a better soundtrack to the images.  Oh yea, this song was released in 2013 at least a year before all that. Genius. We are witness. Baby, we livin… in the moment.
