(Video) Meka Jackson – “Why God”


With the Biblical reference “Thy will be done on Earth, as it is in Heaven” as the basis and focal point, Meka Jackson explores the roots of racial oppression, war & terrorism in America to draw out possible solutions to these inhumanities as plagued by mankind. Why God begins to beg the question – God’s will or choice, Predestiny or karma? (as may pertain to bad things happening to good people) and with no where else to turn, Meka Jackson seeks direct answers from the most high in this cry out for help, mercy and compassion. To a plot twist; there are no answers, it does not make sense; but in essence this is a fair start in recognizing our accountability to ourselves as one human race with the power to eliminate these seeds of evil. One love conquers all & we are all infinite beings of one!

Smurph’s first mixtape, “SmurphTape” was published on Spinrilla, and was recorded at Executive Sounds Studio in Saint Pete. Number 3 on the track list, “All My N*ggas” is currently the most played, as it pays homage to all of his supporters from his birthplace, Richlands NC, and in his new home of Saint Petersburg FL, aka the “Burg”. All of Smurph’s music is recorded at Executive Sounds Studios, and is engineered by Famous Kid Smoothie.
