Not sure who Kautious is, but I do know Erk and the J Man...Off Kautious' album Pharaohs And Peasents in stores today. Spotted at BayXclusives.
POWER STRUGGLE is rapper Nomi accompanied by producers Mister REY and Fatgums. The new album REMITTANCES takes listeners on a journey through the American landscape from the perspective of a working-class immigrant disillusioned by the American dream. With help from fellow comrades Bambu, Kiwi, Denizen Kane, BWAN and others, REMITTANCES promises to speak to the revolutionary in us all. Presented to the people by Beatrock Music, REMITTANCES will be available in stores and online May 18, 2010.
