From tracks such as "Real", "Bad 2 Da Bone" and "Live Thru Me", you can see the struggles he as over come from losing friends to the street life, to songs that everyday average people can relate to and even the the club crowd.

Mixtape: BBU - bell hooks


Mixtape: BBU - bell hooks

Courtesy Audible Treats.

BBU is excited to release their new bell hooks mixtape. The 17-track project, presented by Mishka Records and Mad Decent, is mixed by DJ Benzi and includes features from Das Racist, GLC, Mic Terror, and more. Fans can download the project free from Mishka Records.

For BBU, it's the stuff under the surface – the socially- and politically-tinged themes that come through on a closer listen – that defines the group's uniqueness. With bell hooks, the foundation of those themes starts with the mixtape's name. "We started throwing around the name 'Outlaw Culture,' which is this dope cultural criticism book," recalls Jasson Perez. "It examines how racism, sexism, and capitalism still impacts pop culture. The book is written by bell hooks." The goal, says BBU, was to get fans wondering who bell hooks is, and in doing so, the listener can grasp the greater message.

Musically, to match that message, BBU shows plenty of artistic progression, touching on diverse sounds and topics throughout bell hooks. "We were willing to take more risks – to be more radical and confrontational with our politics – but express it from more a personal space," says Jasson Perez, noting that the group wanted to get closer to the sounds of hip-hop they listened to as kids.

"Something About Mary" finds the group in full-on storytelling mode, for example, while "Cormega" displays the group's lyricism. Elsewhere, "Beau Sia" is all fun and good times. "Outlaw Culture," however, is BBU at their best, mixing up-tempo, left-of-center production with politically- and socially-minded themes. "It's a really good representation of our group dynamic," says Epic of the recent single. "We're influenced by Dead Prez but we're also big fans of Spank Rock, The Clash. This song was an opportunity to pay homage to all of our musical influences."
