THE AMERICAN NIGHTMARE: LUPE FIASCO – AROUND MY WAY VIDEO BREAKDOWN

Square

Video breakdown of the topics Lupe Fiasco brought up on his song Around My Way off the Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album. Wanted to get this out on Blackout Tuesday and then on the 4th so we can pretend this vid dropped on one of those days… Moral of the song is the truth in every situation should be our goal when we have these conversations, and as we struggle with being conscious and fighting against our unconscious biases and prejudice, we must be aware that we are in a system made to make the average American’s life a depressing struggle. Chasing the American dream will make your reality a nightmare, since America from the start was based on some of the most evil events in human history. The Ottoman Empire was the greatest until it wasn’t, so maybe we should try and be better in how we treat each other, including those in different parts of the world, and our planet as a whole. PEACE
