AFRICA IN YOUR EARBUDS #36: OLD MONEY ~ 'NO DEATH'

"Old Money is the joint moniker of Bedstuy, BK beatmakers/MCs Scheme and Andre Oswald, a pair that take cross-continental sonic cues from favelas, townships & projects and  filter them through their unique Afro-Caribbean lens.
For Africa In Your Earbuds #36: “No Death” Old Money present an outstanding 51-minute mix enwrapped in ancient and modern African spiritual systems that lie outside of mainstream religion — practices onlookers might tag as devil’s worship or the occult. The mix is a journey through black/African worship, which Old Money cryptically describe:
Death is an illusion.
Death is an illusion.
Death is an illusion.
Death is an illusion.
No Death.

Jasiri X ~ Ascension (Produced by Rel!g!on)

Emcee and community activist Jasiri X is one of the rising stars in Pittsburgh's burgeoning hip-hop scene. Following in the footsteps of Steel City natives Mac Miller and Wiz Khalifa, Jasiri is the latest Pittsburgh rapper to garner national attention. Unlike those artists (and most others today), Jasiri brings a socially conscious message to his music, delivering hard-hitting edutainment in the tradition of hip-hop greats from Public Enemy to dead prez. After garnering significant attention last year for his tribute track "Trayvon" and being featured on outlets as diverse as AllHipHop and The Huffington Post, Jasiri kicks off 2013 with his latest album, Ascension. Produced entirely by Rel!g!on, Ascension hits iTunes and all other digital retailers on March 26th, 2013.

In times like these, Dark Comedy is no laughing matter. So with all jokes aside, we wanted to put a satirical spin on A$AP Rocky's "Fuckin' Problem" in order to address current events and issues. Events and issues that include the school shooting in Connecticut, gun control, mental health, and America's prescription drug addition amongst others. RIP to everyone that lost their lives in the Newtown, CT school shooting and the innocent lives lost everyday in these streets and around the world.
