Bambu’s “Something” Music Video

Caught sight of this from the home­girl Tri­cia:

In Bam’s words: “Some­thing” is a song that was released this past March, dur­ing Women’s His­tory Month in hopes of rais­ing aware­ness about vio­lence against women. These are the accom­pa­ny­ing visu­als, by Oishi Media, star­ring Tep Castillo. The Hip Hop com­mu­nity rarely takes a firm stance against such issues and often times cel­e­brates such acts – “… all I heard was Poppa don’t hit me no more…” This song will be included on the re-release of Exact Change on the bonus disc titled, Short Changed drop­ping on April 29th. 

Tell me this doesn’t hit you to the core.

Here’s the video “Some­thing” by Bambu.

NOH8 Campaign

Inspired by Robert Indi­ana’s LOVE sculp­ture, I orig­i­nally designed it as donation-fundraiser for the “No On 8″ cam­paign. Due to its fluid Design mean­ing and impli­ca­tions, it can be uni­ver­sally used to express your intol­er­ance to any form of “Hate” (H8).

If you are inter­ested in pur­chas­ing t-shirts, bags, hats, but­tons, etc. with the NOH8 Design, I have set up a store­front with the NOH8 prod­uct line over at:

Par­tial pro­ceeds from this prod­uct line will be donated towards the cam­paign against Propo­si­tion 8.1

In the mean­time, spread the word… http://justamemo.com/noh8

Update: There seems to be a NOH8 Cam­paign (a pho­to­graphic silent protest). More info here.
