“Remember when political MCs made hip-hop one of the most vibrant and
revolutionary art-forms in the world? When style and technique were intertwined
with substantial lyrics from people with enlightened perspectives who hoped to
affect real change in the world? I do. So does Lee Reed, who has a ton to say
about the most depressing period of social and political instability in my life time.”
Vish Khanna – CBC Music?s Hip-Hop Community Producer
“Fully distinguishable and original.
