I’ve always thought that watching Curtis Mayfield perform doesn’t look much different than somebody doing Curtis Mayfield karaoke. I feel like his glasses are always kinda crooked, he kinda moves funny, and the way his mouth moves when he sings just doesn’t line up at all with how beautiful and smooth his actual voice is. I always really enjoy watching it though, and I like the points he brings up in his interview. It’s good to be reminded that all the themes that are in modern black music have been there for a real long time, and artists are still dealing with the same problems and misconceptions from decades ago. Thanks for being who you are, Curtis.

Oh! Remember this one from a couple months back?? See, I told you his issues are still playing out in modern times.
