Modern Griots Spotlight: Affirmative Action


Check out the new song, “Affirmative Action,” featuring rappers Animosity, Kevlar, Apex and my cousin, Rashida, aka Ms. “More Foxy Brown”. Also, go listen to the mixtape, It Was Bitten, by Avatar the Articulate (Avie Fresh and One-Take).

Despite the satirically seeming title, Avatar’s motivation for this release, accompanying his reverence to Nas, is to offer a new vantage point to the time-honored original, so that others can appreciate the concepts and issues addressed in his music…
