Hip hop is a cultural force that never ceases to amaze me. From artists creative use of words to create their “raps” to the ever-evolving use of samples and original production, there is always something new and exciting happening. I find this to be most true when i find/am introduced to emcees and groups that originate from places outside of the United States.
One example of this is Wagëblë who’s “name connotes the communal meeting place for the people to discuss the issues that affect their lives; the group’s philosophy originates from the name’s associated acronym, Wax Aduna Geddu Ettu Baatin Lemu Elek, which essentially means that Wageble feels that their calling is to speak truth to the world about the essential spiritual knowledge of life in order to ensure a positive future.” This Tru Skool Tuesday includes a couple examples of Wagëblë’s music and message. Check them out and enjoy!
