Ohbliv - Lewse Joints II

One of RVA’s best beatmakers, Ohbliv, has released a new album called Lewse Joints II, and you immediately become a cooler person after listening to just one track.  Starting off with “Imagination Station,” which I can only surmise is a fucked-up warped, eerie sample of the really old children’s program. The breezy 70s soul jammer sets the stage for what’s to come: badass clips morphed into even more badass loops.

Watch: These kids from Ferguson have an important message for all white people

Sometimes it takes the voices of children to speak truth to power, especially when it comes to the evils of racism.

Without question, the widespread police brutality and abuse, both in Ferguson, Mo., and around the country, has elevated the consciousness of young people across America. But many others still are laboring on the illusion that we are living in a post-racial nation following the election of President Barack Obama.

These kids send the perfect wake up call | Follow micdotcom

The Ferguson City Council convened for the first time since Mike Brown’s death, and proved that they literally give no fucks about what the community has to say. Added to their vague, paltry proposed reforms, seems real change will have to come in Ferguson via the ballot box. I don’t care where you live folks— let this be a lesson in voting/participating in your local elections and government! #staywoke #farfromover 

My people getting it!
