Video: Malcolm London – No Matter What, LIFE (In Dedication to Dominique Franklin)

| November 26, 2014 | 0 Comments

Directed by Emmanuel Camacho

One of the rising young talents of Chicago, Malcolm London, has some poetry with a message that comes just in time for this week’s world-stopping event. Very strong visual here, which was created in conjunction with Enstrumental Clothing. Tell a friend to tell a friend.

I’ll let him take the floor:

Malcolm London, called the Gil-Scott Heron of this generation by Cornel West, is an internationally recognized poet, activist, and educator.

On 11/08/2014, Malcolm was 1 of 8 young people from Chicago representing the “We Charge Genocide” organization that traveled as a delegation to Geneva, Switzerland to present a report on Chicago Police violence to the United Nations Committee Against Torture at their 53rd Session in Geneva, during which the U.S. was under full review. The group submitted their report to the Committee Against Torture during the hour reserved for CIvil Rights groups. The report detailed data collected on the experience of young people of color in marginalized communities most targeted by police violence in Chicago.

Related to the matter, Drew from Enstrumental Clothing @enstrumental made a creative contribution and donation to this cause, in the form of a shirt, to address the 2014 killing of Dominique Franklin (“DAMO”) by the CPD … A statement/concept derived from the “Jake The Snake” shirt (“The Chicago Police Dept. Killed (“Assassinated”) Fred Hampton.”) created by Enstrumental Clothing in 2010.

4 New Taylor Bennett Songs Leak

| November 26, 2014 | 0 Comments


Somebody call a plumber, there’s been a massive leak. It appears a hacker has somehow, someway found their way into Taylor Bennett’s inbox and have snatched an EP’s worth of new and unreleased songs. The songs have been packaged together by said leaker under the title Freshman Year: First Semester, and were just posted to Reddit via a Soundcloud link. Damn.

Obviously Taylor is pressed about the leak, but he’s taking it in stride. Sometimes you just have to charge it to the game. Word to Silkk. Either way, enjoy this nice little Holiday surprise from Mr. Bennett — even if it wasn’t sanctioned.

Update: Taylor has now released via his Soundcloud for his fans. Check it below.
