Various Artists What About Us?
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: Hard Knock
Anyone tired of hearing how many women an MC scores per night should pick up this disc. What About Us? includes tracks with a social conscience, focusing on questioning the United States' post-9/11 politics. Blackalicious contributes the outstanding, apocalyptic "Sky is Falling," Zion I reps with the melodically beautiful "Dune," and California's The Piper stands out with the didactic "U.S. History." A snippet of an interview with Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., who voted against war with Iraq, gives additional perspective. "There's those of us who are gonna fight," she says, and you can only hope she's right.
