A few words from Struggle himself on the making of the Black Curtains video:
"When the US Marshals took me into custody 2 years ago I had just finished recording my album.. So I knew the world would hear my story.. We dropped my first video a few days before I got arrested and the response was great.. But it was a cliff-hanger! It ends with me getting thrown in Jail, leaving my kids behind.. It needed a conclusion.. My trial was coming up and I knew I'd get transferred soon so I set a plan in motion to get a camera crew inside the County Jail.. Everyone said I was crazy.. Nobody ever pulled that off.. Yeah Johnny did Folsom Prison.. But Johnny went home after the show.. This was different.. After weeks of politics and red-tape, they agreed to give us 30 minutes to film what we needed.. It was one of those moments in life where things just come together.. No "acting".. No "directing".. Just reality.. It all started to make sense.. Why I wrote those lyrics.. Why I drove to Memphis that night even though everything told me not to.. Why I was sitting here in Jail.. It was the only way to make my words so real that they'd change my life.. That they could change someone else's life.. My Grandma Jessi always warned me not to put my kids out there in the media.. But I wrote Black Curtains for my son Will. Even though the message is the same for all the sons of the struggle, I'm speaking straight to him.. It had to be him in the video.. No "acting".. No "directing".. Everyone in that video means something to me.. Every place, every word has meaning.. So when the curtains are pulled back you're gonna see a piece of my soul.. Whether you think I'm right or wrong, all I ask is that you listen to my story.. And try to see the truth in it.."
In a white room, with black curtains, in the station.
Black roof country, no gold pavements, tired stars.
In a white room, with black curtains, in the station.
Daddy's a thug, mommas a saint
She sing a story to God, praying for change
The air's thick but the mic's warm
Cause you were chasing them rainbows right into the storm
Chasing her son cause he was out on the block
Cause shorty wanna be a thug an he listens to Pac
In the same streets pops got shot in
A legacy expected for him to get it poppin'
It's Fat Pete's boy tell em' for certain
Can't see the world passed these black curtains
In a white room, with black curtains, in the station.
Black roof country, no gold pavements, tired stars.
In a white room, with black curtains, in the station.
He stands still while the time flies
Got kids of his own, responsible for five lives
Come in late don't startle the dog
To bring home the bacon had to slaughter the hog
A father will fall so the family will rise
An when the Feds all arrive, it's time for goodbyes
The look in the eyes of a child all alone
Will make any king give up his throne
They look at his son, he'll have it for certain
So now I'm tearing down the black curtains
You said no strings could secure you in the station
Platform tickets, restless diesel, goodbye windows
I walked into such a sad time at the station
As I walked out, felt my own needs just beginning
I wait in this place where the sun never shines
Down here with you where the shadows run from themselves
The streets told me what I was supposed to be because of who my daddy was
But if he would've been alive, he would've wanted me to be better than he was
So now as I see my son I say "Be better than I was son, break the cycle"
Like Waylon said, "I leave a lot to live up to, and a lot to live down"
My strengths, my weaknesses, the truth and the lies
So don't walk in my shadow, follow the light
And look past these black curtains

Cliffhanger? Yes, I want to read your story. Your life. Your family. Who is Jelly Roll to you? Who was your daddy? many? I'm into your story, you don't want your kids in the media (got to listen to Grandma Jessi), I am just fascinated by your story. It shows how you are all just like us. All family's have their black sheep & we all just want to be loved.

I'm just curious...if Mr.Waylon (the coolest of coolest guys ever)"Waymore" Jennings is Struggle's grandpa and Mrs. Jessi Colter Jennings is Struggle's Shooter, his Uncle or father? I'm gonna go with the uncle? I only know of Shooter but I know Waylon was married a few times so maybe that explains that part for me. Waylon is my favorite singer from my first days of watching Dukes of Hazzard back as a kid... as Waylon, was the Balladeer of that show and that's the first time I put my grandpa's music together with who Waylon was and so...I can honestly say Waylon was my first ever "Singer-Songwriter hero" Dude was the living breathing epitome of cool if you ask me! I wasn't feeling Struggle when I first heard all truth, I was pissed off because some asshole had done went and messed with my dude's tunes and sampled his music and so on...I wasn't feeling that at all...then I learned this was his grandson and so I really had to step back and check myself... and then.... it made me proud that a kid in a whole other game of music was holding on to his roots and even introducing some of this new blood to Waylon's music. So with all this said...I'm listening...and I get time in listening to rap was a lot earlier than nowadays rap thing going on but I went into performing and eventually recording music myself and I get to dabble with all sorts of music now days recording these guys in South Carolina and I get rock, rap, Country and sometimes a blend of it altogether.... and I'm warming up to Struggle....if anything I'm glad the ol' boy knows his roots, embraces them and turns others on to his families history of music. Because damn if the History isn't deep in that Jennings "Southern Comfort" bunch!! Keep doing your thang Struggle...God Bless =W=
