Ok let’s get the formalities out of the way so we can get to the nitty gritty. This track from my man’s Uptown OX was produced by AB The Pro from the upcoming mixtape “The Color Grey” the visuals were Directed by 2Cams and I applaud everyone that had a hand in this one. I love cable access and will always support it because of it’s platform it give the ordinary people. As long as you have a viewpoint, you can have a soapbox. Also it gave for a launching pad for some very notable celebrities in the past. Jack Black, Howard Stern, and my man Petey Greene.

Petey Greene: 70’s & 80’s DC radio host turned television celebrity, who made his mark discussing racism, poverty, drugs, and life in America with unparalleled candor. Fast forward 30 years and much of rap has lost its edge, much of its political ambition.

Bringing it back, is Diamond District emcee Uptown XO on the newest cut, Petey Greene, from his soon to be released mixtape “The Color Grey” (10/1). The Washingtonian rapper uses his platform to explore the Chicago School Teachers Strike, the judicial system and institutionalization, and racism in general. Enjoy the new video, look out for the mixtape, and educate yourself for the action.

This joint speaks to me because it tells the truth about life in America as one of “US”. Oftentimes people overlook, ignore, or try to dumb-down how it is and music as a whole has done alot to diffuse that as well. Yet every now and then a cat like Uptown XO steps up to tel the truth, shame the devil, and promote change of all things. Keep up the great work my brotha. Read this, love this, spread this.
