Mr. Lif is fusing music with politics in a new way. He will be writing 1 to 2 songs every 3 weeks..
until Election Day (November 4), following which Mr. Lif will release one more single based on his post electoral thoughts. This single will preface the release of the I Heard It Today (Bloodbot Tactical Enterprises) full length on Inauguration Day (January 20, 2009). The album will feature additional unreleased tracks and corresponding artwork.
Mr. Lif says…
“With a new administration on the horizon, many of us are hoping things will change for the better. We are all hoping our voices will be heard and our concerns met with solutions. This project allows me to voice and magnify the all too often ignored opinions of the American people. My research has led me to speak with so many citizens nation wide, and the stories of your struggles combined with the knowledge of my own struggles have given birth to the project now known as I Heard It Today. “
You can also tune into his Presidential Reports on his MySpace page where he will regularly comment on current events. Allhiphop.com will have exclusive streams of the tracks one day prior to release. And we’re a little jealous.
