You took the words right out of my mouth!!!!!
Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh! Your lyrics speak a thousand words of revelation and your tongue is sharper than any two-edged sword! Continue to allow your vibes to expose the enemy. Peace be unto you my brother!

This CD posed a refreshing view on global issues and the influence that the US has on Afrika. In addition, it also made me think twice about black TV shows that my kids watch in the US.
