Frank Lucas: The man I worked for had one of the biggest companies in New York City. He didn't own his own company. White man owned it, so they owned him. Nobody owns me, though.
Support the artist! Watch the full poem: Javon Johnson - “cuz he’s black”
this is so relevant in light of recent events of police brutality against MIchael Brown and john Crawford. #blacklivesmatter
Hilarious but fun science fact! The reason why this works is because of the rhythm syncopation. All of these songs (and most songs by black musicians) have 2/4 bass count. (1 and 2 and 1 and 2) rather than a 4/4 count ( 1 and 1 and 1 and 1) beat you see in other genre. This 2/4 count is similar to the human heartbeat. It’s why we have a a better grasp of rhythm in music and in dance.
