There’s no argument: The web is flooded with Obama-themed tracks–most of which my grandma could have spit a better 16 over. So the good people at The Black House got together with LA luminary Akili Shine and crafted this dope audio visual for Generation O (that’ s us, just in case you missed that thing that happened two days ago). Mad proppers.
With album leaks pouring onto the Internets, we know N.A.S.A. have big things in store with their debut LP Sprit of Apollo, and we now know what all five versions of the cover will show.
The beat rocking duo of Sam ‘Squeak E. Clean’ Spiegel and DJ Zegon enlisted Shepard Fairey, Sage Vaughn, The Date Farmers, Marcel Dzama and Mark Gonzales to do their artwork. All five artists will also be directing videos for songs off the disc, and not wanting to stop there, N.A.S.A. will also be putting out custom skate decks from Girl Skateboards and Chocolate.
That’s Shepard Fairey’s video for ‘Money’ up top, and you can see …
Z-Trip just dropped Victory Lap: The Obama Mix Pt. 2 (2009), and it is available for free download. It’s radio friendly, and celebrates all the voters who participated in electing Barack Obama. Don’t be shy; download it here and take a victory lap. You can also peep his first Obama mix if you missed out.
Will money still be the root of all evil if it’s worth absolutely nothing? Like when Young Jeezy releases The Depression and his snarly clairvoyancy predicts the downfall of the global economy quicker than Bill O’Reilly can cut off Barney Frank…will we still be belying the evil incarnate of dollars and cents? If so, it’s good to know that Chuck D will still be the voice of that reason. Above, check out the NASA video, via p4k, and all its Shepard Fairey stylings.
