DALLAS -- We often hear the saying, "We're living in the best of times.” But for a lot of people, especially black Americans, we're living in some of the of worst times -- with police brutality and unarmed killings being shoved down our throats.
Well, one local poet turned hip-hop artist is looking to share is thoughts – and truths – about the state of America through his music.
That artist is Bobby Sessions.
"I think it's very important for people to think and operate at a high level,” Sessions said. “And for me, being able to contribute to that is truly a blessing," Sessions told NewsFix. "And I never want to be grouped in with the category of artists that makes music where you l listen to the song on a Monday, and you forget about them on a Tuesday. I just want to be remembered, and I think everyone should want to be remembered and I'm happy I facilitate that."
Bobby Session's latest work is his album, “Law of Attraction.”
"In 2013, I watched the documentary called The Secret, and it was about the principle of law of attraction at what you think you become, thoughts become things,” Sessions said. “If you see it in your mind, you can hold it in your hand."
And while people may think it's easy for artists to express themselves, Sessions feels otherwise.
"Just like it's uncomfortable for someone to hear about police brutality or discrimination, it was uncomfortable for me to write it,” Sessions said. “I wrote it because I was uncomfortable."
And from uncomfortable to comfortably sitting and the top of Dallas' hip-hop scene, Sessions is taking his movement to the stage, performing at Deep Ellum's RBC for their grand re-opening this Saturday.
"I'm excited to make history,” Sessions said. “RBC is a great venue to have it at. And we're just excited to do something that's historical."
