M1 (of dead prez)


Tonight was supposed to be the launch party for the new record by heavily political English-Iraqi rapper Lowkey (sample lyric: “I’m not anti-American, America is anti-me”), but due to legal issues, he was not allowed to fly in. Instead, he will be joining via Skype his friend M1, one half of the equally political hip-hop group dead prez, who is hosting and performing this evening. Others scheduled to appear include rapper Immortal Technique and political scientist and activist Norman Finkelstein, among others.
