Mr. Lif "What About Us"

Don't you hate being left out? Being invisible? Mr. Lif comes correct on this track. Is he angry? that's not important, he's doing what rap music started out doing. He's talking about the disenfranchised; those who can't speak for themselves. This is the socially conscious hip hop that is missing from terrestial radio.

Now the beats are not so unique on "What About Us" and just as I'm getting into the track, it's over. But he's got the hook and he's got the message.

Check out this extended interview w/Mr. Lif on Okayplayer. There's a link to "What About Us" at the end of the article.

What ya think hip hoppers, are the days of socially conscious hip hop over? kfox.
