It’s been said many times before, but today it’s as true as it’s ever been: if you’re not mad about what’s been going on in Washington (and the harm said political machinations will undoubtedly cause in your neighborhood), then you haven’t been paying attention. Luckily for those who fall into that category, The Swapmeet Ensemble have stepped into the Booth with a little something to help you GET MAD! This mixtape inclusion finds Oakland natives Silence DemALL and Poach Stevers doing their best Howard Beale impressions, in hopes of arousing the passions of disenfranchised ‘hood-dwellers across the nation. Over DJ Shag‘s brass-infused beat, the crew rail against the devastation caused by police corruption, gentrification and general disregard for the urban poor. Capped off with a fiery guest 16 from Mean Doe Green, this is but one of a diverse array of eclectic jams on The Swapmeet Ensemble’s Booth-sponsored One Man’s Trash… LP, scheduled to hit our mixtape page October 10.
