Having spent his last few Booth features (Wonder Where You Are, Where I Belong) searching for certainty, San Antonio emcee Question?‘s finally ready to give us some answers. New single The Facts of Life finds the freestyle alum taking an unblinking look at the world around him, facing up to the realities of cruelty, ignorance and meaningless suffering. Backed by Hits’ appropriately poignant production work, an emotionally-charged blend of piano chords and rock flourishes, the emcee rattles off a litany of injustices, from the relatively unimportant (Question realizing he’s not the next Rakim) right up to the most globally-significant (war casualties, Third World poverty). So what is Question’s answer to the ills he describes? Simple compassion: “Human beings are members of a whole, in creation of one essence and soul… if you have no sympathy for human pain, the name of human you cannot retain.” Complete with a chorus by frequent collaborator Verse Da Ink, Facts may well be the emcee most’s insightful effort to date. If you’re digging it, more deep thoughts and hot beats await on his Fear or Dying LP, which has yet to receive a solid drop date. Keep it locked for details!
