Dave Grusin – Friends And Strangers

Digital Crate Digging Continues as we proceed and continue trying to get over the hump per this HumpDay Extravaganza! 

Y’all should know how we do, still broadcasting live and direct from our remote outpost out off of I-20 in Atlanta! 

A brotha was stranded here when lights started blinking on the instrument panel in the 76 Buick Regal out on I-75 outside of Atlanta!  

Signals on the panel said I was stuck! the word on the curb said this was the land of milk and honey so I pressed my luck! Even my homie from Bombay India said they understand a brotha! 

Another homie from India reminded me of American imperialism around the world, an example was Abrams tanks to Ukraine!!  I told him “true dat” per being a black man trying to survive in America! 

I told him the saga  / struggle continues and they’re still not playing fair with a brotha!
O-Zone will razz a comedian and politician per their shady dealing in this nation!! once again it’s on!!

Clones caught up in the machine / apparatus/  check the status!! checked the Atlanta skies, chemtrails left by a drone? 

Told a machinist or social engineer to watch their tone; per Ronnie Laws it’s hard to determine Friends and Strangers..

Either or, now check the score; check the players and the track as we check out the Dave Grusin version of  Friends And Strangers!!
