William S. Burroughs
Most of the energy of political work is devoted to correcting the effects of mismanagement of government.

We need to understand that we are not each others' enemies in this country. And it is only the political class that derives its power by creating friction.

Rap has so many possibilities that need to be explored. There are different factions of rap, but some are in a rut.
