Free MP3: Blue Scholars – May Day
After the innovative concept album “Cinemetropolis“ from last year we’re still eager for more material by Seattle-based duo Blue Scholars. This new track is made in affiliation with The Seattle Times and puts a socially involved focus on recent gun violence in their city.
Geo/Prometheus Brown: “I was approached by The Seattle Times to write an op-ed guest column commenting on the recent gun violence in Seattle. So I wrote a rap and they liked it and posted the lyrics with an [a capella] video in the online Sunday edition. People asked for a studio version so I quickly recorded the verses over this Sabzi beat from last year and the homie Justo came through with the clutch 90-minute mix down.”
