by political rap/hip-hop artist Tha Truth 2010 1 hour, 11.5 minutes
Tha Truth is a conscious/political underground hip hop artist and "rap-tivist" (rapper-activist) known around the Philadelphia area for battling inequality, poverty, discrimination, and injustice. He has performed in countless venues at concerts, colleges, demonstrations, conferences, and benefits. Since 2006 Tha Truth has released three critically acclaimed underground political rap albums that attack the forces that maintain the status quo.
mix: truth, revolution, struggle, the red pill from the matrix, V for Vendetta, fightclub, the spirits of Bob Marley, Howard Zinn, and George Carlin, then add the Simpsons, the Boondocks, and fighting the system, and cook for 60 minutes.
"Tha Mis-Education of the Masses" was released on May 19th 2010 (Malcolm X's birthday). Tha Truth chose this release date purposely to honor freedom fighters Malcolm X and also Harvey Milk (whose birthday is May 22nd). This CD expands on the themes of equality and justice as his previous projects, while adding substantial doses of sarcastic wit, mind bending and humorous metaphors, and a variety of diversified beats comprised from Middle Eastern live percussion/drums, native flutes, acoustic and rock guitar, reggaeton, and a lot of the lost arts of DJ scratching and mixing.

CD: Music For A Better World - Tha Truth
$17.00 $10.00 On Sale!
by political artist Tha Truth 2013 22 tracks.
The latest of four music CDs we carry by political activist and singer/songwriter Tha Truth. We don't carry music , but his work stands out as so unique, so positive, and it's so hard-to-find elsewhere. You won't find it on YouTube. Incisive, insightful, poetic and unlike so much else in music. It's music distilled from the reality of life in these United States at this time in history. Tha Truth gets to the best in us, in the worst of times. The album title is what it's all about: Music for a better world. This artist deserves the recognition he doesn't get, because in the business of the music industry, challenging the way the world works is rarely well-received or even heard by very many. You can be one more catalyst for change by playing this music. Link to it on your blog, Facebook page or website; get it played on your local college, community or commercial radio station. Send the CD to a D.J. you know and like. Spread the word. It's music to make this world a better place.
His best yet.
