Liner Notes

  1. Gil Scott-Heron was a poet, musician and author of the Black Arts Movement whose work deeply impacted and influenced activists, artists and musicians.

  2. Mack the Knife has its roots in the German opera Die Dreigroschenoper (The Threepenny Opera), a socialist critique of capitalism. Its final verse (which is often dropped within modern interpretations of the song) speaks to the class divides of society:

    There are some who are in darkness
    And the others are in light
    And you see the ones in brightness
    Those in darkness drop from sight.

  3. Prolific the Rapper’s powerful remix of Tribe Called Red’s Stadium Pow Wow is both a lyrical and visual force.
