Inspired by the Forward Together Movement, which brought the Moral Monday demonstrations to North Carolina, budding Hip Hop producer Funkleberry (Durham, NC) wrote an original track for the Love Army, sampling the words of Rev. Dr. William Barber, president of the state NAACP, and enlisting esteemed producer Apple Juice Kid (Durham) to compose the beat. At one Moral Monday, Barber speaks of a "train coming," naming a number of things the movement would do to protect citizens' voting rights: "fight extremism...defend the ballot...defend the Constitution...encourage voter turnout regardless of party...and sue to restore voting rights and educational equality." Funkleberry also samples "Ballad of a Hungry Mother," a song by local troubadour Phil Cook (Megafaun). North Carolina emcees Dasan Ahanu and Jrusalam lay down intricate verses about social justice.
