Braille & S1 – Skepticold (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 18th, 2009 by Hyphen

In case you’ve been sleeping, Braille & S1 recorded an album together called CloudNineteen and they just dropped the video for “Skepticold” today.  Not only is the album one of the best of the year, but it’s also serving a much greater purpose than mere entertainment.

As I mentioned a while back, they plan on giving away 30K CD’s at their shows, many to at-risk youth who desperately need some positive hip-hop in their lives.  Along with dropping off the video, Braille gave us an update on the project:

So far they have manufactured 15,000 copies and given away over 8,000.  With many events already booked for the summer, they anticipate reaching the half way mark within the next two months.  For more info check out and

I can’t speak highly enough of Braille’s dedication and work ethic to use his gifts in a positive way.  It’s truly inspiring and everytime I get annoyed by the foolishness in this industry (*cough* Jeezy vs. Gucci *cough*), I think of folks like Braille and remember what I love about this culture.

Plus…the dude can flat out rap his ass off:

Need an Obama sticker?

Obumpa Sticker

Big shout to Mama Hyphen for giving me the heads up on this one. If you’re in need of an Obama sticker, is sending them out for free to help us get Barack in office this year. All you have to do is go here, enter basic info, and they’ll send one out to you with the quickness. If you need more than one, you can give a small donation and get a bunch. If you’d prefer to instead donate directly to Barack Obama’s campaign, you can always do that through his official website, right here.

Remember, Barack does not take money from PAC’s or lobbyists, so his entire campaign has been funded through people like you and me. Even if you can only donate a little (like I did), it can still make a difference. Plus, they usually have matching donations. If you chip in $10, someone else has already pledged to match that. Your $10 just became $20…and you helped move this country in the right direction. If times are rough enough that you can’t spare any, no worries, just grab a sticker and help spread the word. The Hyphmobile has 2 in the back window right now, so join the club…
