Our buddies over at Rapzilla could not have explained this one better:

A big contributor to human trafficking is what American’s buy. The power of our money is much farther reaching than Facebook status updates or votes. Choose where you spend your money wisely and what you spend it on as well. You can be contributing to a company that practices child labor or forced labor which in turn will contribute to sex trafficking.

KIDD wrote “First World Problems” explaining how we as Americans in a first world complain about so many things that aren’t important. We complain about material things that don’t mean much while those in third world countries are struggling and living to die. This song talks about the value we have on our lives and KIDD aimed to help listeners to understand and respect real life, more.

Get down with some KIDD. You can grab King Kulture on iTunes.

A Disparate Vintage

Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
