“Allow me to re-introduce myself
My name is Hov, OH, H-to-the-O-V
I used to move snowflakes by the O-Z
I guess even back then you can call me
CEO of the R-O-C, Hov!”
When he’s not giving us bible scriptures on tracks like Spiritual, Jay knows how to serve up the hot takes like his stance on Police Brutality and Black Lives Matter. This time he’s back reminding us why we call him HOV. In a recent video released by The New York Times titled The War on Drugs he narrates how he felt the War on Drugs was an EPIC FAIL!
“Rates of drug use are as high as they were when Nixon declared this so-called war in 1971. 45 years later, it’s time to rethink our policies and laws,”
Jay shares his thoughts from the impact of Reagon Era aka the Crack Era in the ’80s to the crazy incarceration rates in the ’90s and the targeting of Black and Latino drug addicts and dealers.
