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.

Between TBO’s previous off-kilter single, “No Water,” and their latest offering, the group highlights the diversity and singularity of “The Great Year,” officially declaring their “shift to a new era.”

L’Orange unveils some stunning visuals today from director EmaLee Arroyo for “Need You” featuring Blu. The track waltzes casually between swing era production allusions and underground head nodding flow. Add to it a post-apocalyptic Adam & Eve story shot in the texture rich Rustic Canyon of California among abandoned bomb shelters, water storage tanks, and bunkers. The scrawl of urban decay washes over everything in this video of love & destruction.

KTL presents The 9/11 FEAR BASED MIND CONTROL PROGRAM Pt2 ft Lenon Honor (BlogTalkRadio) (@Lenonhonor @KTLRadio)

Join KTL Radio as they welcome back to the program Lenon Honor. In honor of his ground breaking tome, "The 911 Fear-Based Mind Control Program" we will take a critical look at the fear-based propaganda that has mushroomed and balloned onto the scene in the last 6 weeks, leading up to the 13th anniversary of 9/11. Lenon Honor writes: Each year, within the 6 weeks leading up to the anniversary of September 11th, 2001, you will find a massive infusion of stories reported on by mass media that have a subliminal resonance with September 11th, 2001.

Add to that Dilated Peoples’ Rakaa Iriscience on the hook and we’ve got blast off.

Mystic ~ Country Roads (@thatgirlmystic)

"Country Roads” is the last free song before the release of the Beautiful Resistance album on 8/26. Like the first two free songs, this was produced Eligh. I would never have released this song separately from the album sequence if I had a choice due to how heavy the subject matter is. Although this is a historical song about the incredibly painful, violent, and racist history of the United States, the lynching of primarily Black men and boys (along with Brown men/boys) continues in the form of apparently legally sanctioned executions by vigilantes and police with very little justice or recognition of the historical systemic racism that ‘birthed’ this nation.
Just as importantly, the kidnappings, rapes, and murders of Black, Brown, Indigenous, and poor women continue to receive less recognition and national outcry. The value placed on our lives and our right to exist/dream/thrive is still unequal as it was in the inception of this country. In this song you hear pain, anger, me wishing I could go back and hold everyone in my arms to protect them; but none of us can return. We can only continue to beautifully resist and push forward through action and solidarity with those of us who make up the majority of the world. These are not just issues in the United States; these are global issues.
In love and in struggle,


KTL RADIO presents THE WAR REPORT ft The Cozmophyzixians (BlogTalkRadio) (@RaAKHU @KTLRadio)


There's a war going on in the Heavens no man is safe from. 

Here on Earth, we can clearly see the manifestation of these conflicting planetary energies at play. 

What lessons can we extract from the Great Teacher/Disciplinarian, Saturn?

What does Mars have in store, as we see military personnel spill into the street and we are witnessing the militirization of authority at an alarming rate? Do the Heavens support this build up? Has it just begun or is it at it's apex?

More importantly, as beings on this planet, under the planetary influence of these vast bodies above us, what can we do?

Is man a willing or unwilling participant in this celestial slow waltz?

Join us as The Cozmophyzixians led by RaAkhu return to continue a conversation that was started on this platform in October 2012, when Saturn first went in Scorpio. We will demonstrate that none of what you have seen thus far are isolated incidents, but they are all connected by an ethereal thread line to leads right into the present and extends right into the future...the LAW OF 44 is in FULL EFFECT!

Jasiri X ~ 212° (Produced by Soy Sos) (@jasiri_x)

“I never really wanted the role of Hip-Hop artist that speaks when something tragic happens in our community, but I guess it is what it is. I got so many calls, tweets, and texts from folks asking me to say something so here it is. It’s raw and angry because that’s how I feel about more Black death unjustly at the hands of the police. For Michael Brown, Eric Garner, John Crawford, and Ezell Ford, I hope your lives are not in vain, and God brings your families peace. For my community, this won’t stop until we stop it, and the first step is unity. I called this song 212 degrees because that’s the boiling point. The lid is about to blow off this whole masquerade.”
