Summary: Absolute Genius!!!!
Comment: Im pretty damn sure this is a cab calloway sample,but anyway i'll cut to the chase. A one of a kind track from a one of a kind emcee/producer with nuthin but heart & soul pouring out from all over. The current mainstream needs a slap in the face with this to see what real music is. Unlike all that repetitive certified garbage currently hoggin the radiowaves.

Comment: This is a flat out ill joint. Raydar Ellis drops a gem on us as he tells the story of three black actors from three different eras, providing insightful social commentary on how racism doesn’t so much go away as it does simply change forms. Many people love to argue nowadays what is the duty or role or responsibility of the emcee. Is it his/her duty to inform, educate, spark change, sell records, or simply entertain? Does he/she have more social responsibility than the rest of us since he/she is in the spotlight? Personally, I think we put too much pressure on emcees to make up for and “fix” all of our societal ills. That said, I still have much respect for any emcee that chooses to do a song like this for whatever reason. And a joint like this also proves that it is quite possible to be informative, educational, thoughtful, creative, and entertaining all at the same time. Edutainment. KRS-One would be proud. Raydar Ellis also provides the somewhat melancholy beat which skillfully sets the tone for the theme of the song.
