LATE LAST NIGHT
Editor's note: I was expecting some afro-centric, disco-boogie, space-age message to the future but all I got was a sociometric sockdolager! Yeah, the brutha has a sermon on how to save the world and it starts with not being THE MAN. Not in racial terms but rather in global ones. Love your brother and save the planet etc. Can't we all applaud the sentiment if not the message? Well...we can all appreciate the afro helmet of the dude on the left regardless of our politics, caste or aesthetic views.
