Ep. 12 West Africa Project Part 5
on: May 5, 2011
FLOW and Hasan Salaam journeyed to West Africa to advocate freedom of speech in Guinea-Bissau by being the first U.S hip hop artist to perform there, as well as teach creative writing to the youth. This was made possible due to our partners Cobiana Communications, the Impossible Music Sessions, and all of our individual sponsors. The journey took us through Dakar, Senegal and Bissau, where Hasan performed alongside the Baloberos (who were beaten and imprisoned for their socially conscious lyrical content) and the rest of the BigUP GB Movement. Music is the weapon of the future. Hasan's highly anticipated album "Life in Black and White" coming in 2011.
