Every song that I post up this month will have some significance to it. I’ll try not to put up any random music, I want people to take some time and think. This track was beautifully written by Sam Cooke in 1963 and would become his magnum opus. His label released the track shortly after his death in 1964, Cooke was killed by a hotel manager in Los Angeles and his “murder” was ruled a justifiable homicide. Which should give you some insight into the life in Los Angeles in the 60s. Everyone has a picture of racism in America and they conveniantly cage it in the southern states. However, true this may seem, the probably is and has always been a much larger issue. Los Angeles’ police chief at the time was a man named William H Parker. Parker would recruit his white officers from southern states, his police force faced accusations of brutality and racial profiling against the growing black and latino population of Los Angeles. These actions by Parker and his police force eventually came to a head with the Watts Riots in 1965, a year after Sam’s passing. “A Change Is Gonna Come” was Cooke’s response to Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ In The Wind” which had impressed him due to the fact it was written by someone who was not black. It became the soundtrack for the entire Civil Rights Movement during the 60s. To this day it stirs up feelings that run the gamut of emotion. Rolling Stone has listed it on their 500 most important songs of all time list.

A – The first G.I. Joe sucked
B – This one will probably suck
C – The Rock as Road Block pretty much makes up for it, well that and more Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow fighting it out, plus throw Jinx in there and I heard Timber, Snakes Eyes wolf will be showing up as well
D – Bruce Willis as the “Original” G.I. Joe is pretty clever, and I’ll be honest I don’t hate that move
E – I’ll probably go see it in the theater because of the action and what not……..there are worse things in live, just as long as it isn’t as bad as the first one, but no Marlon Wayans being in the movie has all but sealed that certainty.
Brand new Krizzle, a smoothed out track from his upcoming album 4EVANADAY, which will be dropping on Feb 20th……
The 1st song I wanted 2 release from #4evaNaDay is called Boobie Miles. It’s about over coming all the obstacles that block your dreams, the sacrifices that come with how hard you have to go to obtain your goal, giving your all no matter what the situation, the only difference between a winner N a loser is a winner plays until he wins – K.R.I.T.
