"Music is a spiritual thing. You don’t play with music. If you play with music, you will die young. When the higher forces give you the gift of music, musicianship, it must be well used for the good of humanity. If you use it to deceive people…you will die young."
- Fela Kuti
(From his documentary film Music Is A Weapon)
I wish today’s rappers and producers in hip hop could absorb this quote.
