12:31 pm
america's image is just a facade a special interview next. it's not that long ago. most u.s. robbers were embracing their new popular president with problem which was great but you still big gamble. for some hip hop artist who has worn away behind the scenes just be a. great general c.e.o. of rap duo smith and wesson is among the few cutting against the grain to confronting issues like social injustice more rain government corruption. and they were one of. the brooklyn born robin sat down with our team to discuss his new album america's nightmare partit was children of war i would say first that i've bored of her bra. i think that most people regular folks like myself.
12:32 pm
we're interested in what we can do. and vironment to make it better. and a lot of times we are. we we are we're giving this this horse and we're just like was a pulse of believe in this thing what is person and. we've seen it done over and over and over and at times you have to realize like the truth is the truth you know like we're all human beings are all we will have the sponsibility is but i think that no one human being can save the world i think that people get involved like doing something like getting obama elected i think in a spirit of. the sixty's when they spoke out about injustices that was going or you had the elders had to come down and now say ok we hear that now we want to be the faces for this thing so now we can catapult it across the nation i think that for centuries. people have known that the president
12:33 pm
has been the face of. corporation called america the united states and i think when we start dealing with the reality of that then we can start to find what our position is and how we played this great position you know it's been said that the people out of government you know and i don't think people realize that so. do you mean to tell me you don't think that. u.s. president barack obama can change the system the system that you say is led. by the corporations of the united states in my opinion i think he means well and i think that there are there are there are people who are going to run in this country way before barrage graduate and probably thought about running for office come in and set it all in here and yet. but the exciting chapter but the reason that most so many americans rallied around him is because he promised to change that pattern he vowed to as
12:34 pm
a matter of fact in two thousand and eight i think in october two thousand and eight you put a video up on you tube a letter to barack obama where you said we need a president that knows how to react. we stand with you. has he reacted to any of the injustices you've seen in some forms he has because he cannot stand and do nothing like was crazy about the people by the people we have love for our country wherever we are you know. and we will we we will support the people that are in office if they have the. interests of the people. sometimes it takes longer than other places because as you look in greece right now it's crazy in greece right now. and what we see is the media telling us how things are going so we're kind of like we're kind of calm before the storm so to speak i think that obama is a good way to keep people that day i think that his his demeanor is so they call
12:35 pm
him the cool president you know it's like these characteristics are almost like it reminds me of rhett almost like you want to make this cool guy appeal to people but then the people who are there are some people that's looking at the issues and they're like they're not really happy with the performance of the president right now issues being unemployment like what we were speaking about before how unemployment among african-americans at least here in new york city is four times higher than that of white americans and there's a similar pattern like that in the majority of states throughout the country do you think that having a black president in office or did you think it would have changed or help change that problem or combat the problem just the problem in a way i think that's an excellent question and i think that's one of the one of the things that i think about most when i look at the people in the community i think that people have to realize that they are the government the people who elect the
12:36 pm
government officials and i think it's important that people are informed about this is. pass the buck to give something right. i'm saying yes jobs. give us better health care open more schools for our children like what we see that we have as a unified and this is our symbol of and if occasion will just say that. we have to know where the power came from initially came from the people who elect this individual i think that. the need for change is what set this whole thing in motion and it's going on all over the world it just seems like america or the americans. american citizens are just kind of sleeping right now i don't know i don't know if they understand what's really going on in the world or how it affects affects them or affects us because i'm an american citizen tell me about america's
12:37 pm
team and tell me about. what you want. your fans gender standard maybe new people that that don't know that much about your music that will now go watch that video in this into your earlier what message are you saying there hip hop has been given to us. like to give respect so who her african baden's zulu nation i think that hip hop can be used for good for evil. i'm a kid who grew up in brownsville oh she'll brownsville brooklyn not texas a lot of my peers they are not politically afford they don't know even you know feel the necessity to be involved in that process because it doesn't really protect them often and i think that hip hop has given us a stage to open up this dialogue or this dialogue to inform the people why they're there their position is important or participation is important and know that the
12:38 pm
power comes from the people you know black panther power to the people power to all people. we have to remember that. america is this model for democracy you know we've become. just like people in third world countries. look to america and say you know you guys really seem like you got it together you know yet it's not really together it's just a facade of you know everybody is the make up is there but behind the make up is kind of like kind of like chaotic if it's not a democracy here in the united states what is it that's a good question it's a good question. when people can speak up when they can have a peaceful protests. about injustices that's in the community is for something as small as from police brutality to what's going on in the with the oil spill. and be active when you have the people dissatisfied what was going on with the policies
12:39 pm
then you have to wake up in the morning president obama has to work a bit more say i what am i going to do about what's going on in. detroit all fifty fifty five schools is called going to deal with this like we're talking about the future and some of the children who. economy does pose an economy forcing us pause and jobs for a second let's talk about the opportunity for for children even know when it is there's a hole in their country so to create more jobs so it gets a little tricky when you start getting close to sort of red tape what is america's nightmare because that's what your album is called america's nightmare part two children of war right now what is america's nightmare i think america's nightmares a mirror. a reflection of the ugliness and i think that america the beautiful like the heart of song goes i think that america is a beautiful place but i think that it's been covered with so much turmoil in oil so
12:40 pm
much turmoil and i think that. if we shake loose we can begin to get into this this just this you know better quality of life with not such a separation of races and ethnic backgrounds are we going to we're going to have to deal with. religion but how does that go beyond just rhetoric i mean there needs to be action order to change what you call is a nightmare is the action and in wars is the action cutting the military budget is the action i don't know recognizing muslim holidays i mean you're talking about religion you're talking about race relations what kind of action action. action by the administration action ministration will not do anything for us. our kids tell you what the action was because i might be a science something what i would say is that our ability to connect with each other
12:41 pm
is the power that the government can't control and they're working very strongly on controlling me even when you look at what's going on with the internet and trying to find you know with the f.c.c. and different rulings and stuff. was going on with china with google. it's a lot of. changes going on in the constitutions across the world and i think that when the people because we outnumber. we outnumber the senator the representatives outnumber these people that if we really dissatisfied i think that we can say that in a manner that will change and i think that when we have when we put our children to school to college in one of them might want to be the next obama we've got to make sure he can do the work we want to push him to see if you can do the work is a lot of it's a lot of things that. obama has to face you know i'm not. totally disappointed in him i think that as a as a as
12:42 pm
a person you have to do your best job and then you working with the united states government can't because it can't be easy see your message to your fellow americans i gather is open your eyes open your eyes don't sleep don't don't fall for whatever they feed you you know most kings a lot of kings will poison because they were. it was they will loving of their subjects and a lot of times you know there's just wickedness and you have to know that there's wickedness and in the world you have to know that there are people who are just here to profit and to put their foot on the back of people who are poor who don't know any better and i think that most of our community is like when you look around in the communities if you just left them alone for like a week you would see how rich these communities were a lot of people had to go outside of the community to make their money and they always bring it back so it's not really like this crazy thing like crime is not really crazy in new york a city like this explosion of cultures meshing together one
12:43 pm
