Trying to Catch Them Riding Dirty

Here’s Himalayan Project (thanks Abhi) rapping about being brown with real verbal dexterity and rare political adroitness.

Zeeb and Chee Malabar’s track about being pulled over by an NYC cop, Oblique Brown, is on their myspace page here--it's got an old-timey feel to it while being totally current. Postcards from Paradise (with Rainman) is also a captivating track, idealistic and beautiful and more importantly, more my speed :P .

These Brooklyn boys are playing in New York all this month. Very worth going to see.
