SoulStice ft. Monique Harcum - Strange Kinda Love

Beyond Borders

It’s one of those issues for which the phrase “elephant in the room” was invented, and it’s not getting any easier to ignore: hip-hop’s general attitude toward homosexuality is kinda… Stone Age. With rappers tossing around “no homo” like verbal punctuation, it seems evident that the status quo is a problem. The solution? Well, Strange Kinda Love, the latest single off SoulStice‘s recently-released Beyond Borders LP is a damned good start. On the newly-released cut, the Chicago-born, D.C.-based emcee draws a comparison between today’s controversy regarding gay marriage and the formerly forbidden, now (for the most part) accepted practice of interracial marriage, looking forward to the day when equal rights become a reality for homosexual couples. Backed by SBe‘s upbeat, piano-driven boardwork and topped off with a catchy hook by Monique Harcum, this track is as ear-pleasing as its message is (in my opinion) necessary. Booth readers, your thoughts on SKL and its contentious topic?
