Why do they keep putting Grand master flash in this? When he wasn't even in the album! Using his name was the only way they could've released this album.

Us black people truly need to change. We must save ourselves before we collapse. And if you claim I'm white, I'm not. I am a black girl who already sees what is happening to kids like me. We're living life too fast and we'll, eventually, die too young.
