"A certain administration which
I won't call by name
took the arts
out of the schools, and that left the brothers out on the street with nothing, so they went to the turntables and started rhyming. Then they had a way
to express themselves, and that's the birth of hip-hop."
"They say this cat Shaft is a bad mother...
Shut Your Mouth!
I'm talkin' 'bout Shaft.
Then We Can Dig It!
He's a complicated man
But no one understands him but his woman
Isaac Hayes Live at Wattstax, 1973
