Last weekend, while visiting some friends in Ottawa, I stumbled into a bookstore and went through the magazine racks. I was happy to find a recent copy of Adbusters. While going through it, I was reminded of some of the recent stats published by Oxfam back in January. The highlight is that the 85 richest people on the planet control as much wealth as the poorest half of the global population put together. It’s grim facts like these that make Greenspan‘s latest track Wine and Cheese all the more relevant. Featuring soundbites from newscasts that highlight systemic poverty, and supplemented by fellow Baltimore rappers Ellis and Rome Cee, all over a layer of soul tinged beats courtesy of Matchy P. You can listen/buy/support Greenspan’s latest album here. If you’re interested in more facts regarding poverty check this out.
