Afro-punk hits Northampton for Halloween 10-31-09



The Afro-punk tour bus left Philadelphia and headed four hours north of the map to perform at Pearl Street in Northampton, MA.

Tonight's show landed on Halloween, giving Saul Williams, CX, Tchaka Diallo, and the rest of the gang a chance to dress up in even wackier stage outfits than in any other city. Getting ready on the bus, Saul and his 13-year-old daughter Saturn put on their Halloween attire on the bus-- Saul bought a yellow… Continue

Afro-punk pushes through Philadelphia - 10-30-09



After the Afro-punk crew partied the night away in Chicago, the guys got on the road again and headed to Philadelphia. When the tour bus reached the city, we were blown away by the action packed shopping district where the Theatre of Living Arts was located. People were outside representing the Afro-punk Philly scene in full effect, rocking bright colors, skateboarding down the strip, and enjoying their town.…

Afroman's Life

Afroman was born and raised in Palmdale, California. He began rapping in the eighth grade, and in his church he played drums and guitar. After moving to palm dale, he started to play High division football for his High school. He was a running back, and had major scouts from around the NFL watching him in amazement. His football carrer ended horrible when he was hit from behind and broke and tore almost every muscle in his shoulder. He was not able to play football again, and then started to… Continue

I just wish...

That it were easier to hunt down more rad black and brown within these circles.



Is it possible in this day and age to not assimilate fully into the bullshit capitalist dream? Will 'Afro-Punk' be another commodity that can be bought and sold?



I don't know - I understand that a lot of punks are not involved with politics or any shit like that. But when will people start to worry about their own well being?



When will we start worrying about the poverty, crime and… Continue

Tired of sugarfooting

When certain questions are asked about why women are not of equal standing in certain situations I bring up that the vast majority of women on earth seem to do what male culture wants (more specifically why women follow along and are passive) for anyone who wonders what I mean, I supply this quote



"Determining the history of female bisexuality is more problematic, in that women in most of the studied societies were under the domination of the males, and on one hand had less… Continue

two weeks left

I'm straight buggin out. I am all about the adventure and all but this is really taking it's toll on me. I am not looking forward to being homeless again for any period of time. It's a trap. You think 'oh I'll only do this for a couple of months' and then a year passes. I can't do a year in the hole. The hole meaning some ghetto ass hotel on someone's track and having to deal with drug dealers and users and pimps tryin to recruit you everyday. Not to mention just the stigma of it all. I am… Continue

My Fabricated Life: A Journey. Part 1: The parts I stole from Warriors Two

Kifaru said my life was fabricated, I'd like to address that in this series of blogs, entitled "My Fabricated Life: A Journey"



I was born on Zu Mountain in 1888. I was "the funkiest monkey that ever popped out of an egg on a mountain top" according to my theme song.



My father was Kwai Cha'ang Caine. We used to wander the desert all the time together after the Siulam (told ya, none of that "xiao lin" stuff here, it's all Cantonese all the time. Did I mention I was fluent in… Continue

Afro-Punk Drives To Detroit - 10.26.09

Performing in the city known for housing Motown Records, the guys knew they had to bring a stellar performance to the crowd in Detroit. When we pulled up to the Magic Stick, Saul and the crew headed inside the venue ready to get to business. Here is a picture of Saul Williams on left loading out of the bus and heading to the venue.

Afro-punk makes moves in Minneapolis - 10.25.09





And so the Afro-punk crew left the cold city of Toronto and crossed back into the states-- heading to Minneapolis, Minnesota. Trekking 928 miles to our next venue took two whole days of on the road travel, but it also gave the musicians a chance to discuss their own interpretation of what Afro-punk means to them.



"Afro-punk should represent self-expression in every form," Saul… Continue

The 'Make Yourself' Issue







Peace Stars ^_^



Issue 8, the first in the Dream Definition series is available for download.

It gave layout-issues like no other before it, but it was worth the difficult birth, from which the layout faeries are still recovering.



Intent on reminding us of the importance of creating your path as opposed to letting it happen to you, the dream definition issue focusing on heart-fueled identity is glowing with metaheart light. The feisty… Continue

Living Colour & Pillow Theory

A few weeks before Living Colour released their latest album The Chair in the Doorway (Megaforce Records), the band performed at an invite-only showcase in Brooklyn. I was hanging with my homie Lisa Cortes, one of the producers of the highly anticipated film Precious, and we were both excited.

As arty graphics rotated on a screen in the background, Living Colour transformed from middle-aged men into cocoa-hued children of the rock revolution, exorcising their demons surrounding racism,… Continue

Afro-punk crossed the border, hey Canada! - 10.23.09



Right after the Cleveland show, the Afro-punk tour bus hit the road again and crossed the border into Canada. The crew started to get a little tired, but once we hit Toronto at The Opera House, the guys peppered up their step to put on a sold-out show performance.



When we hit The Opera House, the crew hit the ground running-- we only had two hours to set up for the show. Tonight's show… Continue
