Hard Truths :: Lil’ Ghostwriter Releases ‘A Song For The Police’ On Weird Rap Recrods

After dropping Interdependence, a compilation curated by Weird Rap in hopes of raising money for those impacted by COVID-19Th’ Mole found himself caught between new and refreshed connections with a handful of talent, and a world devolving into a breaking point of racial tension and minority/police interactions filled with struggle and strife.  With such a striking crossroads laid out, it only seemed logical to address both of these things directly, and with Lil’ Ghostwriter‘s Inner Plenum EP on the verge of release through Weird Rap Records, the duo decided to address the issues and ills with urgency.  Over a chaotic, edge-filled production by Th’ MoleLil’ Ghostwriter lays out a laundry list of facts and observations dealing directly with the blemish-filled past relations between police and minorities.  With the long road to change just now coming into view, songs like these are of utmost importance, so check it out, share it around, and leave a like and a comment if you hear what’s being said.

Weird Therapy :: Weird Rap Releases ‘Interdependence’ Benefit Compilation

a1859547632_10

From the digital desk of Weird Rap :

Mutual Aid Disaster Relief is a collectively-run, decentralized volunteer network supporting marginalized communities during crises, including the current COVID-19 pandemic, by providing resources, boosting local efforts, and sharing knowledge and skills.  Acting as an autonomy, with a loosely-based, adaptable structure, alone or with other groups, MADR is able to focus and maximize its energy, efficiently responding to events as needed while avoiding pitfalls of traditionally-structured non-profits.  The principle of “solidarity, not charity” means that actions are based on the stated needs of the communities it serves, working cooperatively rather than administering from above.

Weird Rap explores the exceptional, unusual, or otherwise “weird” currents of rap music, new & old.  Across various platforms, we seek to nurture discussion, share new and old music releases, and spread general awareness of out-of-the-ordinary rap artists.  Aside from social media, we host Weird Rap TV on YouTube, Weird Rap Radio on Spotify, r/WeirdRap on Reddit, and Weird Rap Records on Bandcamp, with a podcast currently in the works.

In cooperation with fellow underground hip hop labels Audio Recon and Hecticrecs, Weird Rap’s Interdependence compilation is Weird Rap’s first full-length music release.  A response to the pandemic we all know and hate, 100% of its profits are being donated to Mutual Aid Disaster Relief, supporting their efforts around COVID-19 and future disasters.

With the generosity of the artists involved, we’ve hand-picked what we consider to be an amazing array of exclusive music including experimental rap pioneers : Kool Keith and Rammellzee, art rap legends Awol One, Beans, MC Paul Barman, Mike Ladd, Mestizo and Staplemouth, and contemporary mavericks Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice, Clipping, cunabear, Duncecap, Lil Ghostwriter, Mr. Yote and War Church.’

Quick shoutout to WEIRD RAP for not only showing Panic Ruminations love, but following through by placing my music on a massive curated list of alternative and fringe hip-hop artists, many of whom inspire me greatly.  I am honored to have my name in this group of artists in any capacity.  Definitely check out this list, and spread it around so we can get some numbers!
