Not convinced yet? Let this year’s hosts change your mind!
So our semester is winding down and we’re hitting those books preparing for finals. But while we’re drinking our coffee/ energy drinks and staying up until the wee hours of the morning finishing papers and studying for tests, we can’t forget the reasons why we do the work. The motivations that get us up in the morning to go to school/ meetings/ events/ etc. LFS would like to inject some nationalistic music to go along with those energy drinks to help stimulate all your senses. Today’s song is brought to you by Deep Foundation out of the East Coast and features numerous emcees, including BAYAN-USA Deputy Sec. Gen. Jack “Kiwi” De Jesus and Nomi from Power Struggle and ALAY (Active Leadership to Advance the Youth). Enjoy!
With Diwang Pinay coming up this Sunday, we thought it’d be a good idea to feature a performer from a past DP in order to get you hyped for the type of talent you’ll see this year. Hopie Spitshard is a lyricist who performed at last year’s DP and has since released her debut solo album. Check out her myspace and support women in Hiphop!
Please support our friends at the Liwanag Kultural Center in Daly City, CA!

Kalayaan School for Equity greatly values the historical role of Hip Hop music within community activism and involvement. In the spirit of this, we bring to you “Back to Basics” – A Kommunity Hip Hop Workshop. This workshop will focus on three steps:
1) analysis of a Hip Hop song about our community 2) intro/basics to creating rap music 3) creation of our own music that addresses the needs of our own communities.
Future sessions will build on basics covered in this session.
