De La Soul Ft. Chuck D – The People (@WeAreDeLaSoul @MrChuckD @plugwondelasoul @delasoulsdugout)

Originally “The People” was suppose to drop in June around the same time the Chuck D/Hot 97/Peter Rosenberg situation took place. We chose to hold off and not add fuel to any fires. Our next aim was for a Black Friday release. Coincidentally the Ferguson tragedy took place, and more recently the non-indictment verdict. Somehow this song was destined to be a part of something more than just dropping a joint. We hope it will lend itself to something positive in these difficult times. -De La Soul
The idea for the song came from a couple of samples, and the track’s vibe is earnest and has a pressing tone to it. The lyrics are commentaries of our struggles and successes, our weaknesses and strengths… the experiences… and trials and tribulations we have faced as human beings, a race, and as individuals. Lyrically Chuck brings a sense of authority and urgency. The power in his voice demands your attention. With Chuck on the track this is a dream come true for us.

Ras Kass – ChristMESS EP (@RasKass)

Ambrosia for Heads is pleased to premiere a free download of notorious waterproof MC Ras Kass’ ‘ChristMESS EP’ sponsored by Platformz, an indie music and media app based search engine, to help kick off the holiday grind. ‘ChristMESS’ is a cohesive compilation of tracks featuring Felony Muzik, Doc Hollywood and Vooodu spanning Ras Kass’ extensive catalog from the resurgence of “Nature Of The Threat” off debut LP ‘Soul On Ice’ to “Yellow Snow” off his 2011 release ‘The Yellow Snow EP’. Brand new track “Frozen” is an unapologetic shock to the system tying the project together in a package that will surely power you through the ensuing seasonal madness.

Miss Brit ~ #BlackFriday (Video) (@KFAI_BRIT) #BlackLivesMatter #NotOneDime #JustGettingStarted

This poem is dedicated to the mothers who have lost children to gun violence, especially those who have lost their lives to the police. Many corporations are capitalizing on the death of Mike Brown and the protests happening around the nation. Stand with us in solidarity by boycotting Black Friday. Use your economic power to fight back the injustices that legitimize the killing of boys of color.
