One voice becomes many

I've always felt that the best hip-hop is heavily infuenced by - if not all about - pain. It's hard to beat the pain of being abandoned and vilified by your government and fellow citizens. It's hard to beat 10,000 corpses rotting in the Lousiana heat. It's hard to beat being forced to fend for yourself amid alligator and gang infested ruins for a week while bureaucrats argue and politicians take photo ops. Great source material. Great song.

Kudos to Ponderance for the heads-up.
