Recently, Americans have viewed first hand many economical and social injustices. Many by the hands of the very ones who have sworn to protect and serve in this country. I, in no way, intend to share my opinions on this very sensitive subject but I know u all will agree when I say that no city was a bigger display of racial unrest more than Baltimore, Maryland. Following the tragic killing of Freddie Gray, riots flooded the streets; a sight reminecent to the L.A. riots in ’92 following the brutal beating of Rodney King by Los Angeles police. That 1992 display of injustice brought numerous musicians out of the woodworks and into the studio to express their feelings on the issue; musicians like Billy Idol, Ice-T, Sublime, NWA, Offspring, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Ice Cube, Machine Head, Bruce Springsteen, Rancid, Aerosmith, and Ben Harper to name a few. Which poses a question, where are the musicians in 2015 and why are they neglecting to share their feelings on injustice. Well, PRINCE HAS A FEW THINGS TO SAY ABOUT BALTIMORE IN HIS NEW SONG SURPRISINGLY ENTITLED “Baltimore”.
