about

Long Hot Summer serves as a love letter to our city. Everyone's city. In recognition of all those who have come before us and in memory to all those souls we have lost. While in the spirit of classics like What's Going On, Innervisions, and America Eats Its Young, there's still no mistaking that this is music decidedly living in the present... with an ear to the ground and an eye toward the future.

lyrics

LONG HOT SUMMER (LYRICS)
--------------------------------------------

A hot piece of lead in the head
For a loaf of bread,
It's gonna be one long hot summer.
They're turning up the heat
And I can't breathe,
It's gonna be one long hot summer.
Babies killing babies
in the middle of the street,
It's gonna be one long hot summer.
Yeah, it's open season
in the streets,
Watch it come undone.
It's gonna be
A long hot summer.

Summer, summer, summer, summer
It's gonna be one long hot summer.
A long hot summer.

A young mother shot down
While walking with her child,
It's gonna be one long hot summer.
Well, its another long weekend
And the bodies are piling
Higher and higher
Higher and higher

Another 64 shot
12 of them are dead
Another cop caught on video
shooting someone in the back of the head.
Well, he only had his cell phone on him,
but that ain't what they said.
The temperature is getting hot
And it keeps rising higher
Higher and higher
Higher and higher

It's gonna be ...
L-O-N-G H-O-T
And it keeps rising higher
Higher and higher
Higher and higher
It's gonna be ...
L-O-N-G H-O-T
And it keeps getting hotter
A long hot summer.

And it keeps getting hotter.
