This mashup of video was put together by a youtube user and laid out over a particularly hard song from Killah Priest. The imagery sums up in a very short time the tumultuous styles that accompany suffering, struggle and change. In the present age, this video bids us to think of the uprisings going down in the middle east right now. But there is always a core of my style that sees the personal and private struggle at either end of the gun.
In a journal that I no longer keep, I would always put the following lines down before starting an entry. It is the first line of a Mobb Deep song, but with a crucial alteration:
"There is a war going on inside no man is safe from."
It would be nice to have peace. Maybe one day.
