With the high-profile atrocities that have recently been in the news, violence in all its forms has become an issue at the forefront of the public consciousness. While the correct steps toward solving the problem are debatable (granted, background checks on gun purchases seemed like a no-brainer), there’s one point all of us can agree on: We Can Do Better. On Quake Matthews’ latest effort, the follow-up to early April’s Dance Song, the Halifax spitter voices that sentiment, lamenting what he sees as an endemic lack of respect for human lives. Joining the headliner over J. Cardim‘s hazy, string-laced production, Philly vet Freeway spends his closing verse contemplating the lack of education and guidance that contributes to crime among inner-ctiy youth, and singer RS Smooth lends his vocal to the record’s chorus. This thought-provoking jam can be found on Quake’s Corrado LP, released digitally at the top of the month.
