Hack #3

In the beginning of large lecture on Monday, Dr. Putman played a song about the atomic bomb. It was in the time period of WW2 and so the song was essentially reflecting the chaos of the time. Similarly, when I was listening to my iTunes I noticed J. Cole did the same thing in his rap “January 28th”. He raps, “What’s the price for a black man life? I check the toe tag, not one zero in sight”. I interpreted the lyrics as touching on all the recent police brutality and aggression towards young black men. Interesting how we can look to music to reflect current and past times.
