Stik Figa – Holding Back Tears


Stik Figa about this song : “Holding Back Tears” is a song I wrote as a way to deal with the emotions of loss in the context of my personal experiences as a black man in America. The constant push and pull of what is considered acceptable versus how I feel, and making the right choices for my survival and being able to keep my conscious intact. I’m sure many can relate, so, I thought I would share, and be transparent about it all.”

from the album Stik Figa “Central Standard Time”
produced by Apollo Brown

Daara J Family – Niit (2013) #daarajfamily


Daara J Family is a Senegalese ECO RAP band with artists Ndongo D & Faada Freddy. “They sing about solidarity, they remain true to their messages, their thoughts and beliefs, the need for sharing and learning from one another. The hope that we will all wake up to this path of righteousness is a recurring theme in their speech.”

I already love them for their messages, their music, their authenticity … Here is NIIT :
