In honor of Martin Luther King day, producer Greg Street has released a mixtape infusing samples from Dr. Dre’s The Chronic with recordings of Martin Luther King Jr.’s monumental speeches. “This mixtape is dedicated to the biggest movement of all times,” Greg Street states in the accompanying release, “Every time I listen to these speeches it makes me realize how deep life really is. This man’s legacy is amazing & ask yourself after all he did for man kind. Did Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. die a millionaire? How much is your legacy worth?”
We must not forget that in a world of many differences, our adversity is finding a universal peace that comes with the acceptance and acknowledgment of our continental digressions and contrasts. We leave you with an excerpt from Martin Luther King Jr.’s Nobel Prize acceptance speech, delivered in Stockholm on December 11, 1964:
“Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral questions of our time: the need for man to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to oppression and violence. Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.”
