The Perceptionists

I am delighted to be able to present the Perceptionists’ “Memorial Day” from the album Black Dialogue, which I know about thanks to a very intelligent disc jockey at KLSU. It was fun coming into Baton Rouge, where Republicans love to tread, and hearing “Where are the weapons of mass destruction / We been looking for months and we ain’t found nothing / Please, Mr. President, tell us something / We knew from the beginning that your ass was fronting.” Listen to all the lyrics. Then watch this live performance of another cut from the same album.

Axé.

    Great Memorial Day post. Makes me think of Muhammad Ali in my childhood.

    Wow. That was an amazing video. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  4. It’s like blackface but with a twist. It is dying for reviews!

  5. Reviews – I think it’s had a lot (the album is already 2 years old) but here is one, from Hip Hop Elements:
