You may have never heard of the group “Watoto From the Nile” but these three girls are working very hard to change your reality.
Earlier this year the music group released a song and posted it to YouTube (of course) titled simply “Letter to Lil Wayne”. It’s a positive message where they challenge the language, images. and cultural awareness of one of “today’s hottest rappers”.
The song is now available for download from iTunes for 0nly .99 and has garnered over 1 million views on YouTube. So while the media and the corporate music machine continue to “dumb down” the audience — others are utilizing technology to change the status quo.
It’s about time we hold those who claim they “rep the hood” to a higher standard. If this is where you’re from, then be a part of solving the complex economic, justice, and social challenges faced by those who still play, work and live in the community.
Check out the video below and let us know your thoughts. And if you like it, be sure to download the song over at the itunes store!
