Change. The shift of one state of being to another, typically in the conviction of an individual to adhere to a set of ideas or personal decisions. Conviction being typically static, and change being typically a movement. This contradiction is why change often doesn’t happen as quick as we would like. Often change happens only as we give up our beliefs that hold the most conviction, and in my experience these are the fears. Wouldn’t it be a monstrous shift if our deepest convictions were that of love and knowledge of self. Unlearn cynicism.
I’ve been a J-Live fan for a long time. I appreciate his atomic bomb approach to obliterating the stupidity upon which so much of hip hop and rap is built upon. As an (sometimes, all the time) educator, the passion to teach is self evident in his rhymes, probably only second to his passion to question the status quo. This is one of my favorite J-live songs. Force feeding information through the ear holes.

Pos being one of the best Emcees ever, and J-live being an equal educator… I’ve been meaning to post this song for a long time, but since Sean Sean threw me some Oddisee, I’ll throw this one back. Thanks.
