Ohio-based rapper Armond Wakeup crams a lot into this three minute single including his views on white influence on religion ("I was not force-fed Jesus by Europeans") and cause and effect ("I don't believe in karma - the universe isn't God") whilst offering up intelligent comment on skin colour and modern tolerance which may make you nod your head in agreement. Wakeup succeeds in backing up everything he says with God's truth and even has the time to offer up the nugget of advice "if you complain more than you change, give it a rest" to showcase the man's standing as a sage observer of these strange times. Instrumental and a cappella versions are thrown into the mix for good measure.
