Awesome new video from SoulStice about a topic that clearly he knows about and hits home with him. Check it out!
In fact, if you want an explanation from SoulStice himself:
“Strange Kinda Love” is a song about universal love and tolerance. Since it was originally released, it’s won 4 songwriting contests, including the Billboard World Song Contest. In it, I reflect on my experience as part of an interracial couple and recall that it wasn’t long ago that my wife and I couldn’t have gotten married in the US. Today’s “free love” struggle centers around the LGBT community and same-sex marriage. I’m happy to report that since I wrote this song, 5 states and the District of Columbia now issue same-sex marriage licenses and 5 more provide equivalent spousal rights. We’ve got a long way to go, but we’re moving in the right direction.?
You gotta love it when rappers take on social “Elephants In the Room” and speak on taboo objects. Check out what SoulStice himself says about this new joint:
“As a Black man in America that’s also part of an interracial marriage, I’ve experienced my share of prejudice and bigotry. We’ve come far on issues of race, but still have a ways to go. However, at this stage in the game, I feel like we’ve got even farther to go on issues relating to same-sex relationships and marriages. Love is love…we should have gotten that, if nothing else, from the musical legacies of artists like Michael and Stevie. It’s not a “safe” move for a hip hop artist to show this kind of support for the GLBT community. But as an artist, I feel like it’s my job to challenge the status quo, not just play into it or step around it. To me, being revolutionary means fighting not just for you and yours but for any community suffering injustice.”
