Jasiri X: Hip Hop and the Movement

View descriptionShare
Also - bonus episode tomorrow!Before Kendrick Lamar electrified the Grammys and Beyonce got mainstream America in “Formation,” rapper Jasiri X was making music with a message. His social justice-inspired approach to hip hop has won him countless fans – Angela Davis, Harry Belafonte, and Chuck D, to name a few. Molded by his experiences as a teenager in Pittsburgh, Jasiri’s songs address the challenges and current events that affect people of color in America. In this episode, Jasiri talks with Kamau and Hari about how art and activism are inseparable, the pros and cons of being a “conscious” rapper, and how there’s never a good time for your wife to find out you’ve just been arrested.  Find Jasiri’s work at www.jasirix.com and follow him on Twitter at @jasiri_x.Hari’s coming to a venue near you! Check out his tour dates and find his new album Mainstream American Comic at www.harikondabolu.com.
