I’ve posted a couple of prior quotes from US rappers (on the same instagram acct) who are much younger than Ice T, ... - he’s actually articulate, what happened to rap..

maybe now when you're stuck at home isolated, might be the best time to watch a concert from the days of crowd surfing and mosh pits. not the best quality, but for me, it's the best band at the height of their powers in the best small club in my home town

.@TulsiGabbard has just endorsed @JoeBiden. All the people who said horrible shit about her should apologize. "Pundits" who were wrong about her, the Iraq War, RussiaGate, Hillary easily winning in 2016... should not have jobs. But they will, until you withdraw your attention.

I hope the people who thought wasn't a big deal, but are now convinced it is, have the balls to implore those who currently think everyone is overreacting, to change their minds.

Last Sunday, my guest was photographer and musician @melodiousowls. We spoke about his life, politics and NYC in these early days of . Enjoy!
