"I think Beethoven was brilliant, but like Chuck Berry said, “Roll Over Beethoven.” Black American culture has been the shit since way before I was born. I kind of worry about that with the Kanye West’s of America having so much influence. Kanye West is the Pat Boone of 2019. Also, I look at sexual freedom, LGBTQ issues, reproductive health issues, as being a matter of civil rights. No blues and rock and roll, and all we'd have is Frank Sinatra crooning…Continue

"Music can be such a driving force for good. Because it plays on a person's emotions, it can also make evil attractive. It's a decision we all make every day in so many little and big ways.
