Hip-Hop's Role in the 2008 Presidential Election

Check out this Newsweek article on The Audacity of Hip-Hop's influence on the 2008 Elections. Videos below if you're not the type to "read a book."

Perhaps the best evidence that hip hop's political consciousness is still simmering just beneath the surface is the success of the annual Rock the Bells Festival. Now in its tenth year, Rock the Bells has become the Lollapalooza of hip hop, bringing together some of the most prolific, and politically conscious artists of the last 30 years, selling out stadiums in the process. This year's lineup included A Tribe Called Quest, Nas and De La Soul as well as more polemical rap-activists—Dead Prez and Immortal Technique. In backstage interviews, reactions to politics and the presidential election varied from full support of Obama from rap artists Rakim and Redman to frustration and disillusionment from Ghostface and Method Man. Rakim remarked, "Get out and vote for who you think is going to make a difference. For me, I think Barack is that candidate." Pioneering female rapper MC Lyte encourages her fellow artists to take the responsibility that comes with their influence seriously. She wants luminaries of the hip-hop community to be "extremely certain in whatever it is [they] do."

So, the economy sucks.... I apparently have another unauthorized album for sale dropping Sept 30th and I figure, if everyones gonna make money offa me, why not make it directly and directly to the people who really love this shit anyway.
Out the hands of big business, straight to you.

So.. you got beats?? cd's?? envelopes?? yousendit?? protools?
Whatever you got I'll try and find a way to work with it.

I work fast, so you'll have em fast.

16's for $800 (cause 8's half of 16..ooh math! math yo!) and yeah..we can negotiate.
Maybe you want a hook.. or 8 bars. or an into.. or outro.. whatever.
Figured we'd take advantage of our online community, since some of us may not get the chance to meet in person.
Kinda stick it to the man too. Who doesn't like that?
You send it to me.. You know you gotta pay me first.. lol ... Trust me, if I don't do it you can find me, right? And talk crappity crap about me, cause it's the internet..
I like the honor system and was raised on it.


Sooo... lets have some fun with it.. for ONCE in a long time.
Once you got it, you got it. Not looking for any extra publishing or anything.. Like Half Baked, "Go! Sell Weed!"

Just decided to do this today, so we can do deposits or western union.
I like working with people who love doing this and dont get enough shine.. plus, I like money just coming to me.
I'll put different songs up on my myspace everyday and change you guys to my top friends.
I'm sure I'll find some producers/emcees I didn't even know about and that would be awesome.

ok go!
EMAIL THE ADDRESS AND LETS GET GOING.

THIS IS REAL, IT'S ME.. I'M BLOGGING ABOUT IT NOW ON MY MYSPACE.
LOVE YA, HOPE TO HEAR FROM Y'ALL SOON.
LET'S KEEP THIS SHIT FUN AND CREATIVE AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE DIGITAL AGE.

h/t to GMK via TheRealRhymesayers

Seattle super producer and self proclaimed "great beat writer" Jake One steps from behind the boards to present his own debut full-length album, White Van Music. Polishing his production chops over the last decade, Jake One has crafted the musical soundscapes for everyone from De La Soul("Rock Co.Kane Flow" feat. MF DOOM) to 50 Cent ("All Of Me" feat. Mary J. Blige). With an impressive and diverse discography Jake One has managed to bring his sound from the underground to the Billboard Top 10 charts.

Featuring an engaging cast of emerging underground artists as well as some of Hip Hop's most respected mainstream acts, Jake One's White Van Music will blur the so called lines between underground and mainstream Hip Hop... just as his stellar production career has.

Click here to read the rest of the article over at URB.

Unofficially, RA is a political rapper, a boom-bap revivalist, an enlightened Bahá’í faithful, and a mobile phone rebel, but RA the anti-stereotype has a place, too. “People have a natural tendency to put you in a category so they can understand what you’re all about. They’ll slap a label on you and that’s riveted on, it’s not easy to take off. Since then I’ve realized everything Common Market does and says is gonna be highly scrutinized. So yeah, we’re dirt-footed hippie rappers that burn incense at shows, which isn’t true by the way, but it is what it is.

Check out the write-up on Common Market's RA Scion in today's Seattle Times. Common Market has an album release party and show at Neumos this Thursday at 8pm backed by the Total Experience Gospel Choir, Thee Emergency, and Feral Children. Click here to read the full article.

"The labor [on the tobacco field] serves as a metaphor for the work that needs to be done in the community," said Abeo. "Community organizations are the crops and the seeds. You can't plant seeds and leave it. It's a long process. You have to stay active in the community to reap the harvest."

The name Common Market also comes from humble roots, taken from a corner mom-and-pop store that used to be on Capitol Hill, called the European Common Market.

"Common means 'of the people,' " said Abeo. "And we compete in a marketplace."
