New art from Oakland by way of Cleveland's Dame Drummer. Dame continues to push the envelope and use his art to spark hard conversations. Peep the prep release: Get What You Gave Conceptualized, Written, Produced, Performed, Mixed and Mastered by: Dame Drummer Recorded at Zoolabs in Oakland, California Filmed and Directed by: NOBL Chief Lighting Technician/Gaffer: Benjamin Dennis This video was conducted as a social experiment to test the assumption that there needs to be a shift in thinking. A shift in power. A shift in mind body and spirit regarding racism in America and the rest of the free world. The song poses a real question that supersede the lyrics to the song. If you knew you were going to get what you gave would you still treat others the the way you do? Negatively or Positively: There is always a choice. "If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." Desmond Tutu "The oppressed, having internalized the image of the oppressor and adopted his guidelines, are fearful of freedom." Paulo Freire This is the participants real-time reaction hearing "Get What You Gave" for the very first time. Follow him at https://www.instagram.com/damedrummer/ #DNA

Video: Fantastic Negrito "A Boy Named Andrew" (Directed by Freddy Macdonald)

Fantastic Negrito presents new visuals for his Grammy Award winning Best Contemporary Blues Album "Please Don't Be Dead" (his first Grammy for 2016's "The Last Days of Oakland"). "A Boy Named Andrew" takes the viewer through a series of Negrito's tour/concert performances as well as back stage footage, a day in the life of the artist bringing a different angle on contemporary Blues. Oakland represented to the fullest, tune in. 
On the release, Negrito states, “I was ‘A Boy Named Andrew.’ I grew up in foster care feeling like an outsider, and I wanted to write a song about it – about the real stories and real people I met that may not get their stories heard. The video was shot on location in Milan. We love Italy and the energy of the people there. It was directed by a talented 18 year old named Freddy Macdonald. Thanks Freddy for all your time and energy making this happen.”
