Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover

CoDaK - “We Out (ft. Crisis) [Official Video]

Born and raised in Williamsburg Brooklyn, CoDaK is a HipHop artist that stems from a generation that emerged in the wake of the influences of Biggie Smalls, Tupac Shakur, and Big Pun. CoDaK studied these lyrical talents that set precedents for the generation of HipHop we know today. With that, he absorbed Puns intricate word-play, BIG’s story-telling ability, and Pac’s unmatched passion behind every verse.
