Revolutionary MC you need to check out


30. Aug. 2008, 1:20

You all need to check out Batlimore-based revolutionary MC Son of Nun. His second album, "The Art of Struggle" dropped earlier in August.

S.O.N. is the sharpest MC out there in dismantling the lies about US intervention abroad while sticking it to the racist nature of the criminal justice system at home and challenging attacks against Latinos, Arabs and Muslims and is one of the extreme minority of artists who stand up to the brutal (US backed) Israeli occupation of Palestine. SON uses a class analysis to show how there is a method to all of the ugly forms of oppression that occur daily in which a tiny minority benefit from most folks (white, Black, Latino, etc) fighting for the scraps. On both of his albums, SON fuses these attacks on the system with a strong argument for a way forward: solidarity and mass struggle the likes of which have happened here before (1930s, 1960s) and need to be rebuilt again.

    Hell yeah. S.O.N. is amazing. He opened for Rage Against The Machine in Denver and I got a chance to talk to him for a while. Cool guy, and his new album is great!

    Whaaaa! This is great! I'd like to see more AWARE rappers out there, unfortunately they can't all (or even whole lotta them) be like Immortal Technique or The Coup. Its good to see the spirit survive the bloody 90s.
