“Trump’s the biggest hurricane.” — Tota
s of late, plenty artists have been using their musical platform to vent out and to raise awareness of the social issues that are going on in the world, with the likes of Snoop Dogg, Eminem, YG, and A Tribe Called Quest, just to name a few. The Vallejo, California tandem of Tota and Auston Rose from the GoodCompenny collective vented out on their latest track “Idiocy.”
With everything happening in the world—incarceration, police brutality and the injustice towards minorities—it can get overwhelming. No one should be living in fear, but the world is crazy and that feeling, of course, will put minorities and the inner city communities on edge. Previously, the listed issues were brought up all throughout Tota’s bars. Listeners checking out this track can hear the pain and the angst within every word. This song did its job and fulfilled its purpose by reminding the listener on how ignorance is bliss.
If trapped in an ignorant cycle, there is no hope for the future. The track urges listeners to know the issues. If you’re concerned about your well-being, make a change. A gem dropped in the song was when Tota compared the President to a natural disaster, creating some scary imagery with his heartfelt words. This song will have you lost in your thoughts. It’s something to think about in full.
