8: “U Can’t Sing R Song” by Spearhead

The Chocolate Supa Highway Is Paved With Republicans.Oh damn, y’all.  Here I go.  I’m gonna throw down some music to make love to your old lady (man) by.  Foreal.

Here’s one from Spearhead, from back before Michael Franti broke out as a star on his own right (he was always the star, he just started taking top billing later).  The entire album, Chocolate Supa Highway (1997) is epically good.  It’s a perfect album to make a rap-hater think twice.  Franti is a morally-driven man, and the lyrics on this album are often as deep and thoughtful as they are “well-spat” (I have derived at this term in an attempt to capture the vernacular of the street for “skillfully rapped”).  I’ve included a couple more YouTube listens from this album at the bottom to show you the full Franti range.

So put on ur purple bedspread, light some candles, download this song, and enjoy.
