Video: Divine Suns - "Divine Suns" (dir. Magnesium)

MAP: Video Description: Some of the greatest stories have never been told. Some of the best songs have never been heard. At least not on radio. Such is the case with the Atlanta collective of Divine Suns. A narrative that began in heated cyphers on the campus of Morehouse College sees the light of day with a crisp and humble visual treatment. And while not household names, they are hardly new to the game.

Red Pill Releases Free EP prod. Oddisee, Apollo Brown, Duke Westlake

MMG: "Credit to my father for the way that he raised us
When it was hard, we could always complain but
Somebody had it harder for whatever it's worth
Remember he would tell me it could always be worse
So lookin' back on my childhood, It wasn't all so bad
I guess I could smile... you could see me smile"
- Red Pill

@RATheRuggedMan Unleashes "Media Midgets" Video (@NatureSOunds)

R.A. The Rugged Man Unleashes "Media Midgets" Video

Nature Sounds: More than two decades after their classic collaboration "Every Record Label Sucks Dick," legendary emcee R.A. The Rugged Man and iconic producer Buckwild are back with another powerful statement, in the form of R.A.'s new music video "Media Midgets". This time around, the target is broader: from TV producers to radio stations to government propaganda.

"Society continues to be brainwashed and programmed," explains the Rugged Man. "They are told what to watch, what to wear, how to think, how to vote, who's lives are important and unimportant, what music and entertainment is relevant. The youth especially need to know that they are being programmed, and spoon fed another man's agenda. They have to think for themselves."
