Audio: Mike Lee   Revolutionary Psalms (Prod. Shungu)

There’s something great happening in music where people are taking a stand against the social issues at hand in droves. Indie artist Mike Lee has taken it upon himself to release a track called “Revolutionary Psalms”, produced by Shungu.

“Recent injustices around the country stemming from events in Ferguson along with others such as the innocent murder of Eric Garner has led me (Mike Lee) to ponder about and question the true motives of such an institution. An institution that is suppose to guard and protect our rights, yet is doing the exact opposite and leaving many of our citizens in doubt.” – Mike Lee

(Note: Submission sent before the tragic event in which two NYPD officers were killed this past weekend.)

I’m definitely looking forward to this album, my goodness.
