A couple of weeks ago, Jarrett Martineau over at Revolutions Per Minute released a hip-hop mix called the #NationHood Mixtape. Spanning 35 tracks, the #NationHood Mixtape features artists Sacramento Knoxx, Flying Lotus, Invincible, Gonjasufi, Boikutt, Gil Scott Heron, Shigeto and many more. It’s an incredible mix of tunes that track what it really means to fight for something, and it’s labeled “music for the movement.”
From Jarrett’s original post:
“Combining the voices of many struggles, peoples and nations, the #NationHood Mixtape brings together an amazing array of hip-hop, spoken word, beats, ideas and sounds from artists across the world.
This is music for the movement: songs to inspire the liberation of oppressed peoples globally, and to bring Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists together in rhythmic force. For this mix, I wanted to showcase a diversity of styles that illustrate our commonalities in struggle, our shared experiences, and the many ways in which our words—in whatever language we sing and speak them—locate us in common purpose, resistance, and action to transform the world.
From LA to Chicago, Detroit to New Brunswick, Germany to Palestine, Phoenix to Greece, Nəxʷsƛ̕áy̕əm̕ , Tsalagi and Six Nations, to Anishinaabe and Mi’kmaq, and everywhere in between, the #NationHood Mixtape spans hoods and communities across Turtle Island and the globe.”
