"Changes" -- Sarah Polonsky, @SarahPolonsky
“I came from the gutter and I’m still here." The social message is serious yet laid down over the most uplifting melodies. This is Pac’s genius: spit it hard and tell the truth. But on something so danceable? The vision of this song is still one that resonates with me every single day - because skin color, music taste - all of it means nothing. If we don’t keep our minds open (say to “a black president” as Pac says in the song) then we stop evolving as people."
