Macklemore – Drug Dealer

You know Macklemore is onto something big, taking on the predatory, big-pharma culture in America, with previous dope records like “Kevin,” and now, “Drug Dealer.”

They said it wasn’t a gateway drug
My homie was takin’ subs and he ain’t wake up
The whole while, these billionaires, they kicked up
Paying out congress so we take their drugs
Murderers who will never face the judge
And we dancin’ to a song about our face goin’ numb
But I seen homies turn grey, noses draining blood
I could’ve been gone, out 30’s, faded in that tub
That’s Prince, Michael and Whitney, that’s Amy, Ledger and Pimp C
That’s Yams, that’s DJ A.M
God damn they’re making a killing
Now it’s getting attention cause Sara, Katey and Billy
But this shit’s been going one from Seattle out to South Philly
It just moved out about the city
And spread out to the ‘burbs
Now it’s everybody’s problem, got a nation on the verge
Take Activis off the market, jack the price up on the syrup
But Purdue farmer’s ’bout to move that work.

Above is a powerful beginning verse from a pressing, much-needed fight that we must take on collectively as a society, to reclaim our youth, healthcare, and devastating drug culture.

The real kinda hip hop to spotlight  on this Tuesday afternoon, and a special shout out to Ariana Deboo – love her vocals 😎
