The Weektape : The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

Who doesn’t know the legendary line : “The Revolutions Will Not Be Televised!”. From the era where the people we’re not satisfied with the way things were, much like how we aren’t satisfied now. Music has been a great way to express yourself be it by making people dance and sing about good times or expressing the frustration of the generation.
Here are a few tracks that focus on that particular subject, from fighting the “Man” to uniting the ghetto’s and hoods by stopping the nonsense. Take a look and hopefully get inspired.
