Tru Skool Tuesday: Knowledge=Power

I may be late, but i only recently got hip to XO from Washington, DC. I’m looking forward to his upcoming mixtape, “The Color Grey.” Check out his first two releases from the project and check out XO’s back catalog on bandcamp.

— Much Love

 

This is the track that had me searching the net for “XO” for a few minutes. XO demonstrates his talent with words to deliver a description and critique of his hometown. The beat gets me amped… i’m barely able to type as i listen, because i want to jump up, throw bows, clap, and be rowdy more generally.

 

I love the concept of this video. What if “knowledge” (in the form of books) could be used to take out one’s enemies? I believe there would be more reading taking place. Maybe the more thought-provoking the book, the more dangerous it would be. Of course, the weapons should be directed mainly against the root of oppression. Hmmm….
