The Souttrotta Series Vol. I: The Blue State (Trust Life Releases)

In a desert of neo-soul cliches, The Blue State effectively mixes politics, partying and real life without degenerating into vapidity or sloganeering. Project creator Hanifah Walidah, Mrk DrkFthr, and Tim'm West headline a talented medley of independent musicians that bravely speak truth to power ("Negrolosophy," "Do,Do,Do"), shake the spirit and move the crowd simultaneously.
