I wanted to take this post to apologize for being out of commission for the past few months. These past few months have seen a lot of activity on the hip-hop side of things.
First, my new EP “See Me” was released on Shemspeed Records last month, celebrated with a fantastic release party at The Mint in Los Angeles. My new video, “This is Unity“, was released last month as well, having been sponsored by Bechol Lashon, one of the premier organizations showcasing and celebrating Jewish Diversity in America today. I released a new single, “Mr. President (The Wisconsin Song)” together with Connecticut-based rapper AWKWORD — a political protest anthem standing in strong solidarity with the workers of Wisconsin and other public workers about to be bled dry by a rabidly anti-worker Tea Party-driven GOP. And, last month, my video, “For My People” — the political track so controversial it didn’t make it to the EP — came out, in collaboration with Guggenheim Award-winning video artist KASUMI:
I performed at the US-Mideast Hip-Hop Exchange Week at Washington University in St. Louis, an event which drew ire from the Palestine Solidarity Movement, where I promoted interfaith unity together with numerous Muslim rappers from Morocco, Libya, and beyond. I performed for the first time for the Winnipeg, Manitoba Jewish community. I was invited to speak at the Muslim-Jewish Conference in Germany, where Jewish and Muslim community leaders come together to strategize for interfaith unity and to visit each other’s communities to create solidarity.
And I have remained on the front line of the struggle for unity as much as I have been able.
Now we get back to chronicling the revolution.
