Black Star - So Be It (Official Music Video) 

Highest levels of lyricism and mentality in music along with Black Thought, Daylyt, KRS One, and many more. Yasiin Bey and Talib deliver beautiful pieces and more can be heard on Luminary! Via Talib Youtube: Listen to No Fear of Time on Luminary – https://luminary.link/nofearoftime Tune in to SNL on Saturday, November 12 as we join host Dave Chappelle as musical guests. "So Be It" was one of the first songs Black Star recorded with Madlib for No Fear Of Time so it definitely set the tone of the project early on. The song is a lyrical exercise, bars on bars, but we are not rhyming for the sake of riddling as the great Chuck D might say. This song is a call to action. It's a prayer. It's a manifesto. - The visuals that accompany it are simple, but strong. Our value is in our performance and how we connect with our audience. We wanted to provide a visual that showcases that for the core fans. - I'm a fan of comedy and I grew up on SNL so this is a career milestone for sure. I can't recall seeing a more hip-hop, a more independent group than Black Star to ever do SNL, so I'm definitely excited to represent for the culture.

Gil Scott Heron - Angel Dust (1978)  

One of the most important progenitors of rap music, Gil Scott-Heron’s aggressive, no-nonsense street poetry inspired a legion of intelligent rappers while his engaging songwriting skills placed him square in the R&B charts later in his career, backed by increasingly contemporary production courtesy of Malcolm Cecil and Nile Rodgers of Chicago. Born in Chicago but transplanted to Tennessee for his early years, Scott-Heron spent most of his high-school years in the Bronx, where he learned firsthand many of the experiences that later made up his songwriting material. He had begun writing before reaching his teenage years, however, and completed his first volume of poetry at the age of 13. Though he attended college in Pennsylvania, he dropped out after one year to concentrate on his writing career and earned plaudits for his novel, The Vulture. https://thirdworldpressfoundation.org/gilscottheron/ (opens in new link) Highlighting creatives and great thinkers.

Weaponizing music 

What features of songs can cause personal and social harm? Phil Maffetone (read more: https://maffetonemusic.com/weaponized-music ) If something has the power to help us, it also has the potential for harm. From medicine, surgery, and hands-on therapies to dietary supplements and food, all have a spectrum of actions. Energy works much the same way. As Einstein said, everything in our world is energy, and it influences us in ways that range from subtle to violent. Music can be a powerful force too. In humans, as in all animals, certain song components, or traits, are vital for optimal performance, generally for health, survival, and on a basic biological level for sexual selection. These include song rate, repertoire variation, as well as song length and amplitude. Scientists sometimes refer to these traits as honest signals. (In songwriting, when a great song just feels great, these are some of the reasons that make it so.)

Killer Mike - RUN ft. Dave Chappelle & Young Thug (Official Music Video) 

“If you’re looking at this video, certain things are gonna stand out: Obviously, there’s a war going on for people who want justice and righteousness, and there’s a war that’s symbolized by what you would notice is old Confederate uniforms and Nazi-like uniforms,” adding that he included the Chappelle monologue clip because he was “inspired by the monologue that Dave Chappelle did at the beginning — to be representative that there’s a fight, the spiritual fight, that is going on every single day with us.”
