Akala Fire In The Booth (Part 1)

Updated: Jun 14, 2020

Akala dropped this back in 2011. Not much to say – it's a history lesson all in itself. Here are some selected lyrics:

2:22 - For small amounts of drug possession there's more black people in jail in America than there is for rape and armed robbery and murder all put together // You can say they're just locking up thugs // Imagine they imprisoned every middle-class kid that had ever held drugs?

3:25 - Then people act a little dysfunctional // You wanna pretend that you don’t know why // If your colour means you can be killed //
