By definition a GENERAL is the highest commissioned rank in the Army. One who holds this rank does so because of experience, attention to detail and an all-encompassing skill to lead. A General must make the tough and decisive decisions putting his squad before the well-being of himself.
It is by no coincidence that Steele of Smif N Wessun has been assigned the rank of GENERAL STEELE. A proven veteran of the Boot Camp Clik and 1/2 of the famed rap duo, Smif N Wessun, General Steele is prepping his second installment of the Amerikkka’s Nightmare series, entitled CHILDREN OF WAR. The 12 track history lesson is in stores world-wide February 23rd.
Amerikkka’s Nightmare Part 2 highlights change that must occur in our great Nation. General Steele states: “America the beautiful has an ugly past. It is the people who live in this great country who have struggled relentlessly to establish this country under the basic common human & constitutional rights that all people should have. These rights have at times been suppressed and our vision of a “land of the free” has been compromised. Some people are complacent with the state of our nation, others are speaking out.”
Through freedom of speech, General Steele has converted his mode of expression into song found within the messages in Amerikkka’s Nightmare Part 2 – Children of War. Tracks such as “Cry Freedom” featuring Dead Prez resonate through the speakers as General Steele proclaims that whatever doesn’t kill you only makes you more strong. “Blood/Sweat/Tears Of Joy/I Cry Freedom/Life Is A Sacrifice Of Our Freedom/You Can’t Deny Freedom/Remove Anything In the Way of Our Freedom/I was Blind/But I Opened My Eyes and Cried Freedom!”
Accompanying the album is the video expose “WE THE PEOPLE” which features artists & community activists living in America who express their views on the current situation of our nation.
