February Monthly Playlist 2015

This new segment called Monthly Playlist, will be three to five tracks that I personally adored during that month, it may be new releases or old school music. Either way you may relate, like the music or learn about a new song, overall I hope you all enjoy the selections.

1. Kendrick Lamar - The Blacker The Berry
Kendrick Lamar is an informed individual (to an extent, he is still evolving). On the track, he speaks about the awareness of his (and the black community's) identity and the hardships of the black community and being the product of the western environment. However, does Kendrick truly understand black consciousness or is this just for the record? - He may truly be the biggest hypocrite of 2015 - It can be argued that society is just as hypocritical, how can the community cry over Trayvon Martin, but still kill their own people.

2. Lupe Fiasco - Madonna (And Other Mothers In The Hood) (Tetsuo & Youth)
Madonna has been taken from Lupe Fiasco's recent album, Tetsuo and Youth. Madonna speaks about mothers raising their children in poverty. Mothers are willing do anything to provide the best for their children, doing numerous jobs, sacrificing luxuries and even renunciation of meals for themselves, putting their child before anything. Despite trying to get them onto the right path, they still fear their child may become a victim of city violence and involved with gang culture. - Be sure to download Tetsuo & Youth, from iTunes, support hip-hop with a message.

3. Yemi Alade - Taking Over Me (ft. Phyno)
As February is the month of admiration, Yemi Alade speaks about being infatuated by her significant other, with a verse from Igbo hip-hop artist Phyno. Women should be independent, and not rely upon others for happiness. Love should not define the individual, rather be an aspect of them - make sure you are content with yourself before allow someone else to share your world.
