Georgia Anne Muldrow - ‘Pop Iconz’
“We as parents have to walk a very fine line between being watchful and overprotective of what our kids are exposed to…and that job is being made even more difficult by the hyper-sexual, consumerist and vain aesthetic packed with visual associations that are intentionally targeting the pre-teen generation. I’m placing the blame on the corporate agenda that abuses the minds and souls of talented or even aspiring artists.
To represent an awareness that is willfully avoidant of self-realization is the bottom line for these influencers of consciousness; if someone’s life goals are completely external his/her mind can easily be subdued and controlled.
Art means too much to me, i ain’t having it.”
About the track:
When Georgia Anne Muldrow surveys the musical landscape, she’s left wanting more. It’s not easy for us to watch the likes of Nicki Minaj dressed up as kalediscopic crack dealer highlighting and promoting a dead end lifestyle.
"rap about the trap ‘stead of kneeeling to god
rap about their back ‘stead of freedom through art
rap about their cheese in a wig from a doll…
your lips are being used black swann, like a pawn”
Produced by Chris Keys, Georgia Anne Muldrow blesses us with her views on the politrix being parlayed into a hateful power structure that is affecting the community. Please don’t get it twisted, she’s not interested in your riches, she’s trying to tell you the children - they are listening.
Demarco - ‘Loyal’
I’m not sure I can envision a bunch of weed heads sacrificing children in worship of Moloch. On the other hand, if we’re talking about the grape and grain nothing’s beyond comprehension.
Did you know…
The human brain contains molecules very similar to those found in the Cannabis/Hemp plant?
The endocannabinoid system is a group of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors in the brain that are involved in a variety of physiological processes.
The two most relevant receptors for cannabinoids are the CB1 and CB2 receptors, which are expressed predominantly in the brain and immune system respectively. (Source:)
In addition, historical records show us that the hemp plant has been used throughtout history as a staple crop of many human cultures. Until recently (within an historical context) hemp had a wide range of uses in the manifacture of many products including: medicine, paper, textiles, rope, food, etc. It can also be used to create building materials, bio-fuel, low carbon ethanol for engines and many other products that are currently produced by processing crude oil.
Hemp can be grown throughout a wide geographic area which covers most of the planet and it’s sustainable. And last but not least, in the immortal words of the prophet Bob Marley: “It’s the healing of the nation”.

from the upcoming return of Diamond District “March On Washington” October 14th. Diamond District is yU, Oddisee, and Uptown XO. Produced by Oddisee.
When Diamond District dropped In the Ruff on Mello Music Group in 2009, the gritty drums and grimy raps combined as elementally as hydrogen and oxygen. The D.C. Voltron of Oddisee, yU, and X.O. dusted off and revitalized a sound once consigned to the catacombs.
Hailed as an instance classic, its impact reverberated throughout the underground and mainstream. The Washington D.C. City Paper called it the city’s best album in many years. During an era when lyricism was deemed too intellectual and samples too dated,Diamond District overturned conventional logic. They preserved the raw and made it righteous.
A half-decade later, the holy trinity has returned with March on Washington. The truths remain timeless. Wisdom over rhythm. Slang turned into testament.
