The People De La Soul Feat Chuck D

The People Feat Chuck D Digital Download

Peace to our family…Plug One, Plug Two and Plug Three for giving a free piece of history by teaming u with Chuck D.

The idea for the song came from a couple of samples, and the track’s vibe is earnest and has a pressing tone to it. The lyrics are commentaries of our struggles and successes, our weaknesses and strengths… the experiences… and trials and tribulations we have faced as human beings, a race, and as individuals. Lyrically Chuck brings a sense of authority and urgency. The power in his voice demands your attention. With Chuck on the track this is a dream come true for us.

Originally “The People” was suppose to drop in June around the same time the Chuck D/Hot 97/Peter Rosenberg situation took place. We chose to hold off and not add fuel to any fires. Our next aim was for a Black Friday release. Coincidentally the Ferguson tragedy took place, and more recently the non-indictment verdict. Somehow this song was destined to be a part of something more than just dropping a joint. We hope it will lend itself to something positive in these difficult times.

Actual Facts about Racial Profiling in Ferguson

Furguson Racial Profiling Actual Facts

The Actual Facts:
Michael Brown, a 18-year old from Ferguson, MO, was shot and killed by local police in front of his grandmother’s house on Aug. 9 2014. The unarmed teen — a recent high school graduate was reported to be starting college that week — was killed by a series of bullets from one officer’s gun, with witnesses saying that his hands were in the air while he was being shots. Photos of his lifeless body went viral on Twitter, with many people comparing his tragic death to those of other African American teenagers Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis.
Was this an isolated for this city or does this city and other cities across America have a dirty little secret. Let’s look at the Actual facts. #APDTA (All Patriots Don’t America).

Boyz in the Hood (behind the scenes)

Many different influences play a key role in our creative process here at Nation19/ APDTA. A heavy stimulus is film making and more importantly films that tell stories that are rarely told and or acknowledged by Hollywood. The film Boyz N the Hood Directed by John Singleton is one of those influences. When the film was released in 1991 it was a first of its kind and though it had strong violent images it also portrayed regular people in south Central LA just trying to live, love, get an education and raise their children despite a plague of gang violence and Police brutality. A stark contrast between the movie Colors which showed an unreal world of police in LA, Boyz n the Hood showed something different.

Our Big bro and researcher LENCH MOB SHORTY actually played in this movie (He was one of the Gang members who stole Ricky’s football) and told us so much insight that we thought to share a little bit for you all to enjoy. Increase the Peace.
