Video: Jasiri X ft. Rhymefest – Who’s Illegal?

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

In response to repressive anti-Immigration legislation SB1070 and HB56, Jasiri X, Rhymefest, and Paradise Gray traveled to Arizona and Alabama courtesy of the Sound Strike to see first hand how these unjust laws break up families, fracture communities and destroy lives.

“Who’s Illegal?” asks the question, can a nation on stolen land, built by stolen people define another group of human beings as illegal? “Who’s Illegal?” was produced by GM3 and directed by Paradise Gray.

Mikkey Halsted – Power Freestyle

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

Mikkey takes it somewhere else on this one, examining the dark-side of what power makes you do. The Darkroom dropping soon followed by the release of the No I.D.-executive produced Photo Album. Although they have history, and Mikkey says Rhymefest brought him the beat before Ye rapped over it, he still shouts Ye out at the end of the song.

Video: Rhymefest – Mermaid (+ Unreleased MP3)

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

Says DJ RTC of RubyHornet:

When we were working on Dangerous 5.18E, Rhymefest told me about a variety of songs he had recorded with different themes. One song he spoke about was a story about falling in love with a Mermaid, who then traps him under water. I had a Ron Burgundy moment and actually thought it was a joke. He made sure that I knew he was serious, and tonight the storied “Mermaid” track hit my inbox. Let the underwater adventure begin. Download it below. If you haven’t picked up El Che yet, it is in stores now and available here.
