Blue Scholars on Hard Knock Radio

Just got a link in my inbox from Paloma with the lo-down on the Blue Scholars who were on the Bay Area's Hard Knock Radio yesterday. Click here to listen to Sabzi and Geo talk to Weyland of KPFA 94.1 FM.

If you wanna bypass all that other sh!t and jump straight to the interview, it begins around the 26 minute 12 second mark.

EXTRA: Blue Scholars on Myx: Dig (VIDEO)

Blue Scholars- Comprised of emcee Geologic AKA Prometheus Brown and DJ Sabzi, this hip hop duo is raising awareness about issues that affect young people, especially those of color. Geo developed his lyrical skills as a spoken word poet in the Seattle group Isangmahal (One love) while Sabzi used his training as a jazz pianist to make beats. The two met in college at a hip hop event and the Blue Scholars were born. They have spent the last 5 years touring the country, performing at immigrants rights rallies, youth centers and colleges, encouraging youth to be informed about the world they live in.
