    Psalm 133 King James Version (KJV)
    133 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
    2 It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;
    3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

    I dont know about the rest of these people who are acting like this is some kind of enlightening moment but, this is totally confusing. It seems to me T I has been just as much a part of the problem as any other sellout. His willing to do and say anything for money, regardless of how it affects his own people is another form of genocide. He sells dreams of crime and violence to up and coming children on most of his records and now want’s to say “America” did it? He is responsible for for setting that example as well as many other artist. He is also the same person who literally fought for a white privileged smart mouth chick that literally raped black women of their culture. If he isn’t a part of the problem, No one is to blame. T I is an opportunist, nothing else. Why didn’t he say this before? He was locked up back to back and harassed way before this! This is another scheme and some of us are dumb enough to fall for it. SMH Like he says in his new song, and I know he means it, “If it aint about the money, dont be waking me up ringing my phone”. He lives by that. NOW, Where do you fit in to this whole scheme?
