New music from IshaBoy Luke

Up and coming Petersburg, VA artist (my hometown also!) and fellow friend IshaBoy Luke posted this status on Facebook today:
"WE NEED A 2013 VERSION OF PUBLIC ENEMY...SUM1 TO INFORM DA YOUTH THAT ONLY PAY ATTENTION TO HIP HOP AND VIDEOS. SUM1 TO SLIDE SUM REAL MESSAGES IN DA MUSIC. FIGHT DA POWER! LOL, BUT 4 REAL -ISHA!!!"
 And here's my reply:
"This is a very good idea and I like it, however, knowing what I and others know, it would be like pulling teeth to get today's youth/generation to listen/pay attention to something with a CLEAR CUT MESSAGE."
  Isha's FB status is what possibly prompted the posting of the following two new tracks, and I'll be posting my thoughts after each track.

 Over a dope beat provided by My Millz (along with a Jay-Z sample for the hook), Isha brings it on the apply titled "Young N Black". When I think of social commentary, this song is a good representation of it. Even to this day, the black man continues to be one of the most stereotyped human beings in the world, and Isha details that so effectively, and it's something that's been talked about in hip hop for YEARS. In my view, it's one of those songs that must be heard to get the full effect, so respectively I won't provide any quotes from the song here. The ONLY thing I feel he could've done on this 4:14 second song is offer some words of wisdom at the end, extending it to about 5:30-6:00 in a good way. Overall, this is probably one of the deepest songs he's made at this point.

"Take Your Time", another apply titled song here, and it's a very good one. This is a message/wake up call to young girls who are in such a rush for the older guy who essentially has nothing going for himself and is likely out to do more harm than good to the innocent. Sadly, even today, there are both types in today's society, and although I could go on for days about this subject, Isha's song, while brief, serves as something that should be heard much like "Young N Black".  Take your time indeed, and it's nothing worthy or rushing into.
  
 Overall, this was a great job by IshaBoy Luke, and anything that can be done on a hip hop level to get today's youth/generation to listen and accept something with a clear message, especially when it comes to matters that can affect them and others around, I'm all for it.
