Sound Session #583 (1/22/17)


Well, that escalated quickly.

We’re less than a week into this new Trump-led America and executive orders attacking many things that the hip-hop & younger communities value are flying fast and free.  Making it harder for first time home owners to pay their mortgage?  Check.  Reducing health care support in developing nations?  Check.  Violating agreements with indigenous Americans to pursue an environmentally damaging oil pipeline?  Check.  Yahtzee.  Triple word score.

All this and the invention of “alternative facts,” or as they’re traditionally known, “lies,” within just a few days.

Tough times ahead.  Be sure to love each other and speak out for what you believe in.  Remember: we are the majority, by far.  Focus on the things that matter and set your sights on the 2018 midterms.  Like K Dot said, “we gon’ be alright.”

Here’s this week’s episode of Sound Session to provide you some musical relief from the madness.  New tracks from artists like Oddisee, Lupe Fiasco, Sol, J. Cole, Tall Black Guy + Ozay Moore (fka Othello), Little Simz + SiR, 070, WOLFE de MCHLS + Big K.R.I.T., Alina Baraz + Khalid, GoldLink, Buddy, Tuxedo, and more.  Throwback dedicated to what it feels like right now.  Overall, lots of good music, which I expect to be even more of a staple over the next 4 years.  We’ll be providing that each week, until Trump bans good taste.
