Curse the day of they birth confused, who's to be praised?
The mighty dollar -- or almighty Allah
I'm like the farmer, plantin words, people are seeds
My truth is the soil; help you grow like trees
May the children come in all colors, change like leaves
but hold before you, one of those, prophetic MC's"-


The City of Camden is the county seat of Camden County, New Jersey, in the United States. It is located across the Delaware River from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As of the U.S. 2000 Census, the city had a total population of 79,904.
Camden was originally incorporated as a city on February 13, 1828, from portions of the now-defunct Newton Township, while the area was still part of Gloucester County. On March 13, 1844, Camden became part of the newly formed Camden County.[7]
Although once a thriving center for manufacturing and industry, Camden is perhaps best known for its struggles with urban dysfunction. -


March ushers us into a deep look at the "black hole" camden NJ. Noted in recent years as one of the worst cities in america blanketed by high crime rates..but notably renovated by positive change in the last 4 years through seeds of redemption. Monday features a prolific doc. by Chris Barret that challenges head on the issues that plaugue camden, along with my family fel sweetenberg aka sinn azucar,(in black) along with help from baby blak and dave ghetto, with a conscious narration of his hometown. Fresh from hard work fel presents "save ya life", which personally rings with me being as though i and many others identify with the urban experience, adolescence to adulthood..i overstand, in my own path and travels, my thoughts are ever toward the urban diaspora. Peep the urban legend..the city of camden.

Fel Sweetenberg takes it back to the streets with Dave Ghetto and Baby Blak on this SoFlo Entertainment single. "Save Ya Life" is a compelling cipher addressed to the codes of the inner-city, where knowledge over-powers pride....and that in itself determines if you'll end up face down floating in the shallows.

Now put the record on repeat. Are they speaking of the street code, or is this some deep wordplay of advice to those new faces in the music scene? Decide yourself.
