Emcee, educator, activist, and Pan-African are just some of the titles that describe the artist Asheru. Perhaps best known today for writing and performing the theme song to the highly rated Boondocks on Adult Swim, today, Asheru is excited to announce a project that he says he is most proud of: Sleepless in Soweto, a 13 track album that was recorded while traveling between his home in DC and South Africa.

For the latest video off of Tanya Morgan's Rubber Souls LP, we have the 6th Sense produced and featured video "Worldmade." Director Alex G captures Tanya Morgan in their element, on their recording grind and juxtaposes this with shots of undefeated, Brooklyn Muay Thai fighter, Angela 'Overkill' Hill, in full-out training mode. Says Tanya Morgan member, Von Pea, on the song: "In a way, 'Worldmade' is a continuation of a song we put out called 'In The City' on the You and What Army EP. From our city to the world. It speaks on how we all value ourselves and each other, and how that leads to the way we are valued by those in positions to help us...the people vs our leaders." Video directed by Alex Ghassan for BKLYN134. Tanya Morgan's Rubber Souls is out now.
