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!

Folks are complaining its an “eye sore” and causing “lots of traffic” are you kidding me? Eye sores are buildings with no purpose, the Gurudwara serves as a place for worship and community seva for the greater Austin area.

If you can’t donate to SaveGuruwara.com, please re-post this blog, share the links, share Young Fateh’s message.
