    Apollo Brown & Ras Kass “Blasphemy” Release | @ApolloBrown @RasKass

    After a few singles, producer Apollo Brown and emcee Ras KassBlasphemy album has released. The project is 15-tracks deep with features from Slaine, Pharoahe Monch, Rakaa Iriscience, Royce Da 5’9″, Sean Price, Xzibit, and others. Free listens below and purchase from Bandcamp.

    Blasphemy, the collaborative album from esteemed Mello Music Group producer Apollo Brown and Ras Kass, is a thought-provoking and highly personal treatise on the unspoken. The sub-rattling and operatic opener “How to Kill God,” a scathing indictment of major religions and the transgressions enacted in their name, serves as a statement of purpose. No “ism” is out of bounds, no topic too untoward. Whatever you hold sacred isn’t above aggressive inquiry.

    Bambu “Party Worker” Release & “Minimum Wage” Video | @BambuDePistola

    Bambu just dropped his new Party Worker album last week, and this new video for “Minimum Wage” dropped today. Free listens below and you can cop the album for about ten bucks. Shot by Kevin Vea and directed by Paco Raterta.

    Party Worker is the latest album from Los Angeles emcee, Bambu. The people-powered, full-length LP is a conceptual work – taking place in a grassroots organizational meeting with an emcee’s twist. It’s pro-worker and pro-people approach was masterfully crafted by Bambu and DJ Phatrick in a span of 4-days. The two locked themselves into a few rooms at the Line Hotel in Los Angeles’ Koreatown and emerged with a 15-track body of work that highlights Bambu’s skill as an emcee and his ability to speak on social issues without rhetoric or the ‘corniness’ that typically comes with socially conscious Hip Hop.

    Minimum Wage is the second featured single off the album. The video was directed, edited and animated by one of the most talented film makers in Manila, Paco Raterta and shot by Welcome To The Party director/editor, Kevin Vea. The video is a moving photograph of everyday life in the Philippines, while traveling with some interesting workers… Or possibly aliens who’ve come to see how we treat our poor and working class.

    Jakarta Records “For The People” Release | @jakartarecords

    Beats for a cause. Check out this 16-track beat tape where 100% of the proceeds will be donated to refugees from Iraq and Syria. Unreleased music by IAMNBODI, Brenk, Suff Daddy, Shuko, Farhot, Houseshoes, Cid Rim, Dexter, Torky Tork and many more. There’s also limited vinyl available.

    My old friend Aras asked me one day if I could perform at the charity event he organizes for the refugees in the Kurdistan Region for the people who are on the run from IS fighters in Iraq ans Syria. He explained the circumstances to me and pointed out the immense struggle these families have to go through day by day. He told me that he and his team are about to fly the money directly to the people in need by themselves. The proceeds will be distributed among refugees, in the Dohug and Erbil Governorate which is very close to the Iraqi/Syrian Border. Due to it’s location a huge part of the Syrian as well as the Yezidi and christian refugees ended up in this region. The money will be delivered directly to the refugees, to help them attend to their most immediate needs, such as food, clean water and warm clothing for the winter. It was clear for me that I had to support his endeavors.

    As I realized that performing there wouldn’t be possible because of me being on tour with the Betty Ford Boys, I wanted to find another way to support this project with something bigger than just a performance. I started calling the homies and everybody was immediately down to support “FOR THE PEOPLE” with an unreleased instrumental. There you have it; this is how the idea for the compilation was born. I would like to thank each and everyone who bought this record and supported this movement. Also I would like to shout out all my brothers who sent me these dope ass beats. And last but definitely not least, Jannis and Jakarta Records for seeing my little vision and making this an official release via Jakarta to help raise even more money. – Salute, Brenk
