Soul Fixin'

Big Boi & MJB Get Political On Us
The upcoming election and Obamamaina has everyone from Nas to channeling their inner Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, Nina Simone & Public Enemy. You can add Big Boi and Mary J. Blige to the list of artists with something to say. The duo express their political and social views on the smooth 'Something's Gotta Give.' Big Boi and Blige, supporters of Obama, touch on everything from the war in Iraq to the dismal economy to the criminal justice system to high gas prices and the upcoming election in the political anthem of the summer. In the words of MJB, "if you can hear me on Capital Hill, something's gotta give." Marvin and Curtis would be so proud.
