Scientists find poverty literally makes kids sicker

According to a study published Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, children from unstable, low-income homes are genetically predisposed to poor health. The researchers studied the DNA of 40 9-year-old African-American boys from stressful, disadvantaged backgrounds, and compared them with the DNA of boys with the same age and ethnicity who came from privileged families.
What they found was shocking: The environmental stress that the boys in the former group were exposed to changed their genetic material. The premature aging of their telomeres left them more vulnerable to physical and mental illness; those who had a genetic sensitivity to dopamine and serotonin — the neurochemicals associated with happiness and pleasure — were at even greater risk.

BLACK SUPER VILLAIN: the MIXTAPE - a soundtrack for scheming, hustling, evading the authorities, destroying your enemies and enjoying your ill-gotten spoils.

Because sometimes spotify doesn’t cut it when you’re tryna take over the world, Pinky.
What follows is a list of tracks from rappers (with a few surprises thrown in) of African-American or Afro-descent, comprising what I feel to be a compelling narrative of a rise to power, violence, vanity, greed, regret, decadence, love, loss, betrayal and ultimately survival.

If you feel like this is desperately missing certain songs, I deplore you to keep that shit to yourself and go make your own mix. 
Also, lemme give a special shout out to magnacarterholygrail and curvellas for inspiring this compilation. 

I’ve uploaded the mixtape and slightly altered the track list. Tracks 5, 28, 65 have been replaced with different mixes and track 57 which was Monster has been replaced with Backstreet Freestyle. The Grooveshark playlist still features the original mix.
Hope y’all enjoy.
