Reseña de álbum

When Florida attorney Jack Thompson did everything he could to have the X-rated music of the 2 Live Crew outlawed, his assault on the First Amendment led many free-speech advocates to take up the group's cause. Thompson's actions inspired quite a bit of anger from both White liberals and African-American rappers, who saw something obscene about a prosperous lawyer declaring war on a young Black entrepreneur who had avoided the pitfalls of Miami's Liberty City ghetto. Luke was under attack for doing the very thing Republicans consistently advocate — using free enterprise to pull himself up by the bootstraps.
