Tavis Smiley interview

5 Sep, 2014

D discusses current rap culture and his newest album, The Black in Man, in this interview for PBS.

And we’ve seen that the words that are spoken through song sometimes can actually give a universal law to people by challenging the things that are unjust and unfair. We didn’t make it up. But it’s also something that we have to learn that, before us, there’s a Curtis Mayfield, there’s a Pete Seeger. You know, people who we’ve lost in human life, but their spirit still lives.
