On the latest single from Awkword’s upcoming 100% for charity project, World View, Australian producer Amin PaYnE flips the original Duran Duran “Notorious” sample for a song inspired by the stabbings and shootings that took place across the country at the premieres for the Biggie biopic of the same name.

In response to repressive anti-Immigration legislation SB1070 and HB56, Jasiri X, Rhymefest, and Paradise Gray traveled to Arizona and Alabama courtesy of the Sound Strike to see first hand how these unjust laws break up families, fracture communities and destroy lives.
You can grab the song here, if you’d like.

Off producer REL!G!ON’s upcoming album, REL!GULOUS.
For Woman’s History Month we wanted to shed light on how violent this society is, especially towards woman and girls. “Three Little Girls” tells the stories of the senseless murders of Christina Taylor Green, who was killed during the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, Brisenia Flores, who was gunned down by anti-immigrant militia intent on starting a race war, and Aiyana Jones, who shot to death while asleep in her home, by the Detroit Police Department, while they were filming a reality TV show.
I realize these are sad stories, but how can we not be moved to action by the cold-blooded killings of innocent little girls? We have to begin to take an unflinching look at a culture that continues to glorify guns, bombs, and war, and sees violence and aggression as the only solutions to its problems.
Written by Jasiri X and featuring 10 year old Hadiyah Yates, “Three Little Girls” was produced by GM3 and directed by Paradise Gray.
