First, We hope you’re doing alright. It feels disingenuous and irresponsible to continue our work of posting new music without acknowledging everything happening right now. As far as our day-to-day work to champion and give a voice to artists and creators, we’re working closely with them to find the balance between continuing to share their art while standing in solidarity with the protest movement.
If you’re not in the space to listen to anything new, feel free to ignore this. If you’re someone that finds solace in hip-hop, rap, and R&B music right now, read on. If you’re feeling energized, here’s a 5-hour playlist full of protest music about the grave injustice of police brutality.
