An artists' duty....such passion about the responsibility of the gift bestowed upon an artist is not just for their pleasure but to effect change...

Nina Simone is my hands down favorite artist from the sixties. I only recently discovered her brilliance as an advocate for justice and everyone's duty to it! Watch the 2 hrs documentary on Netflix of her life and career.

I still write songs for enjoyments sake but they'll ever be about sugar and spice and all things nice, more sugar and spite and all things shite

I just love Nina Simone. A black woman speaking up back then was courageous & very bravo, & magnificent. May she R.I.P

Peace brothers and sisters! We recently used an extract of this interview in a feature film based on the dancer Antoinette Gomis who created incredible work based upon Nina Simone's message - you HAVE to watch it - this message is always relevant in different forms https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ng555VC9bwk&index=11&list=PLvSvb7mP9Gp-lapALjioDc7gnt2749wzt

A lot of artists do speak on real issues of the times, but I can say for hip hop the masses would rather listen to Lil Wayne over Talib Kweli

Love her! Truly an inspiration and way ahead of her time! Here is an art piece I did to honor her legacy. Medium: concrete, tar, latex paint

Moving the masses not the masters is the art of being a celebrity! Always be a celebrator of your art and let it shine.
