VIDEO: Jahmal X "Chatham State of Mind"

[VIDEO] If this isn't something of a call to arms I don't know what is. Local author and activist Jahmal Cole entered this song into the 2013 John Lennon Songwriting Competition. He won the 2013 Grand Prize in the hip-hop category mentioning a number of local items that many who read this blog are familiar with.

Cole raps about the history of activism in this community. Also the crimes that occur in this community such as for example that young lady who was shot and killed leaving a bakery near 87th & King Drive. Also ensures to note that Chatham is a community that has the ability to make something happen.

Anyway here's some more info posted with the vid above and congrats to Mr. Cole:
"Chatham State of Mind" is the 2013 John Lennon Songwriting Competition Grand Prize Award Winning song by South Side Chicago Community Activist Jahmal Cole. The song was produced by Billa Camp.
