Conscientious Hip-Hop with South Asian Voices

27Dec

Just as Talib Kweli and Mos Def joined to combine Hip-Hop and education awareness among the African American community, these young South Asian artists are doing the same for theirs. I feel that these young Sikh rappers are an excellent example of hip-hop as current politics, history, inventive poetry and wordplay, critically reflective insight, and musically captivating activism. These artists are beginning a strong underground movement for social awareness that will exist not only among the young Sikh community, but for the South Asian community as a whole.

Kudos and peace to these brothers for enlightening many youthful souls… with each show at a time.

17Aug

This week’s artist is Humble the Poet, hailing from Toronto! Humble spreads a socially conscious message through his rhymes. He breaks barriers and stereotypes that South Asians go through. But don’t put him in a social activism box, he has several pieces revolving around romance, relationships and human nature.

On August 29th, Humble will be making his way to Sacramento, California to battle California’s very own Mandeep Sethi and several other artist, who recently released “Aisee Taisee” (currently being played on UDR SimplyBhangra Charts show) it’s going to be electrifying seeing these two artists on the same stage.

We will be featuring Humble The Poet on “The Junction” this week… if you are in or around Sacramento…check out this event!
