I've met an incredible artist and human being here at Netrroots - Paradise Gray. A Democracy for America Scholar, he is my roommate here in Providence. He is a Hip Hop producer and activist who uses video for the political empowerment of urban youth. His artistic partner is singer Jasiri X, who is featured in the video below. As a musician, this style was outside my experience, but once I got know their work, I could see the extraordinary technical mastery, the bold political commitment, and best of all the universal appeal.
Enjoy, look up Jasiri X on YouTube - there are dozens of powerful videos. Please share and tweet.
