Artillery Kids feat.Austyn Michael: One In The Same
This song was written a while back and got shelved because I wasn’t sure when and how I wanted to release it. But I feel now is as important a time as ever. Being a middle class white person from the suburbs, I never realized that I did have hard time seeing things from other points of view. That was until I started working at Bethel Grove. The three years that I spent teaching and working with young people in a black community in the city was probably the most eye opening and valuable thing I’ve ever done in my life. It taught me that, above all else, sometimes it is impossible to see things from another’s perspective so it’s best to sit back and listen to what they have to say. That there are real problems that need concrete solutions. That yes, Black Lives Matter.
Thanks so much to my dear friend and one of my favorite rappers, Austyn Michael for lending his lyrical genius on one of the coolest collaborations I’ve ever gotten to do.
