The all-star cast of Big K.R.I.T., B.o.B., Akon, & Jesse Jackson urges people to stop the violence.

In light of the Alton Sterling and Philando Castile tragedies, DJ Greg Street recruits the all-star cast of Big K.R.I.T., B.o.B., Akon, & Jesse Jackson to urge listeners to stay strong in the pursuit of peace. Interpolated throughout are soulful wah-wah guitar licks somewhat reminiscent of Funkadelic's "Maggot Brain," in which bandleader George Clinton, high on LSD, asked his guitarist, Eddie Hazel, to play as though he had learned his mother had just passed away. The guitar on "I Am Somebody" is not nearly as extraordinary, but given the circumstances it's a nice touch.

"I Am Somebody" is an affirmation of self-worth. Give it a listen and share your thoughts in the comments.

Quotable Lyrics

I make good on my talents
You can't fall if you balance
Never stray from a challenge, ever
And never be the type to give up on your dreams
