Amid protest and outrage, what are quickly becoming non-isolated incidents of Police brutality continue to impact the Bay Area community. In January '09, Oscar Grant, unarmed, was shot to death by BART Police officer Johannes Mehserle, and just last month another unarmed victim, Ernesto Duenez, Jr. was fatally shot. Others, names including James Rivera and Rita Elias, have suffered a similar fate at the hands - and weapons - of Bay Police while utilizing the city's public transportation.
As the unprovoked violence continues, so do the protests, and musicians, no strangers to speaking against injustice over the years, have started to lend their voices and visuals to the cause. REL, the instrumentalist and producer also known for his work as one-fourth of the Drums & Ammo collective, has joined those voices with "Public Transit," the latest single and video from his forthcoming experimental instrumental album, On My Way.
"The song and video were made to express the feelings of confusion, hurt, and anger in our community as a result of three Police officer-involved shootings that have taken place on Bay Area public transit lines, " explains REL, who self-directed the video shot the footage video using his iPhone while riding the BART. He later added civilian-captured clips of the recent murders, bringing the video a sense of power and urgency. "The hardest part," explains REL, "was being able to get across all of these emotions without any words at all." Other victims in the videos include Charles Hill and Kenneth Harding.
In the latest chapter in his series of official, artist-sanctioned remixes, producer/deejay Quickie Mart gives a nod to his New Orleans roots with his remix of "Shake Fa Ya Hood", the 1997 street classic from 7th Ward rapper Ricky B (hear the original here). "Shake" follows similar Quickie Mart remixes of songs by Shyvonne and Freddie Gibbs, who also appears on his Haze Diaries mixtape trilogy with NYC rapper Gotham Green (check out Haze Diaries). Ricky just released The Archives, his first new album in over a decade (listen to "Go On Rock Wit It" here).

Toronto, ON – Unloading remixes and exclusive material machine-gun style after a much-much-too-long hiatus from Toronto rapper Shaun Boothe, the latest and arguably most highly anticipated piece of ammo is out August 2nd: his debut album Waiting Room, featuring the smash hit "Let Me Go".
Fresh off an opening gig for Snoop Dogg in London,aCP24 interivew with Donny Osmondand poised to be the next on the list of Toronto Canada's hottest new musical exports, Shaun Boothe has separated himself from the pack with his critically acclaimed Unauthorized Biography Series, featuring prominent historical figures that have inspired him, such as Barak Obama, Bob Marley, Sean P Diddy Coombs and Oprah. Inspired by Nas' tribute to Rakim, Boothe's Bio Series videos summarize the lives and legacies of a wide variety of cultural icons in rhyme form. Getting blog love from Kanye West and tweets from Diddy himself – Boothe's sixth icon to get the biography treatment for his "Hustler's Edition"– it's clear that he's getting the attention of the right people.
With a handful of singles floating around the net, the time has finally come for the release of Shaun's first full body of work.
Waiting Room is officially released August 2nd, 2011, and is a compilation of previously released, unreleased and brand new material.
Boasting production for his go-to producer and cousin Nineteen85, along with a few self produced tracks, Boothe proves on ever song to be an honest, thought-provoking wordsmith – Soul-food in a fast-food driven market.
"Oh, your shoes match your shirt – that's fire/My actions match my words – that's flyer"
The overall sound is big, musical, sample-driven, and pulls heavily on the raw and genuine emotions of a young kid climbing his way up and looking toward the stars.
"Never had a plan B, this is all I ever planned to be"
In an industry where your live show can make you or break you, Shaun Boothe is renowned for his conceptual and highly interactive performances – many of which have graced the opening stages of concerts for multi-platinum artists, including Talib Kweli, Kardinal Offishall, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, and Snoop Dogg. Never satisfied with conforming to the norm, Boothe continually pushes the envelope in the live element of hip-hop. One can only imagine what a show it will be when his stars align and he moves from the side stage to center.
