Hasan Salaam f/Baron from Red Clay “Musical Chairs”

On the heels of releasing two critically acclaimed projects (2008’s “Children of God” and 2011’s collaborative effort with Rugged N Raw “Mohammed Dangerfield” which featured the well-circulated cut with Immortal Technique “Break Of A Star”), Hasan Salaam returns with a new EP “Music Is My Weapon” (appearances by Steele of Smif N Wessun, Chace Infinite, Reef The Lost Cauze & Eternia among others) which is now available; and even loftier goals.

The concept behind Hasan Salaam’s EP “Music Is My Weapon” is the belief that music can be used as a powerful tool in the pursuit of freedom, justice, and equality. With the release of the project, Hasan is aiming to prove that music can change people’s lives, literally. All profits from the sale of the EP will be used to fund a school, clean water well, and medical clinic in Guinea-Bissau , West Africa . In November 2010, Hasan became the first U.S hip hop artist to ever perform in Bissau . On the same trip he worked with the young artists, taught creative writing to the youth, and headlined a concert to promote freedom of speech. The “Music Is My Weapon” project is the next step, in an effort to provide change to a country that remains one of the poorest and least politically stable in the world.

David Dallas- Take a Picture (Video)

David Dallas is back in NYC after a successful trip home to Auckland, NZ, where he did a series of sold out shows in New Zealand and Australia. The video is niiiice. Check it (click the picture) and the inspiration behind it out down below. Enjoy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Today, mtvU premiered his latest video for “Take A Picture.” The video was conceived by Special Problems (production company behind Alicia Key’s HP commercial) and sees 7 different directors/animators interpreting 7 parts of the song. Each person was given a segment of the song and access to David Dallas. A few rules were put in place. Each scene was to be shot on a different format: 16mm film, VHS, Stop Motion, 3d Animation, and during the creation of the video, the directors were not allowed to know what each other were doing. The result is a series of beautiful, very different images pieced together to make the video.”
