It was Mos Def who really brought conscious Hip Hop to the forefront. Abruptly, conscious Hip Hop kinda/sorta, was stalled. Out of that void, comes Minister King X, self-proclaimed the George Jackson of Rap. Just recently, paroled from one of California State Prison’s most violent systems… The SHU ( Security Housing Unit).
This Poet, Activist and Writer stepped into the national spotlight by co-piloting a mass hunger strike to end the torture and indefinite housing of political prisoners in solitary confinement. The treatise was entitled; “The Agreement To End All Hostilities.”
Through his music and movement we see men and women indirectly & directly affected by the policies of mass incarceration/solitary confinement. We also see solutions to the pollutions.
Now he’s spearheading the battle tested conduit of change; California Prison Focus, creating visuals and plays that he wrote and perfected behind the walls and championing the cause of men and women still affected by mass incarceration and solitary confinement.
Maybe, it will take men like Min King X, during these trying times, to educate and entertain us at the same time. Please check out his piece,
