rick_ross_bet_hip-hop_awards_-_h_2012This week Chris and Rec collaborated with TRGGR family Rosa Clemente and Abby HernĂ¡ndes to critique Rick Ross’s recent lyric that promotes sexual assault. Recognizing this lyric as only one manifestation of a larger culture that is complicit in rape culture, we unpack what Rosa Clemente terms the ‘Rap Industrial Complex’ and call for outspoken accountability from both men and women through media channels and within our communities. While critical media outlets such as TRGGR speak out against pervasive patriarchy, we discuss how to move forward in confronting rape culture before, during and after these individual incidents surface in major media channels.

During this episode of TRGGR Rec and Harmonie spoke with Anonymous 127 a music producer out of Springfield, MA. In honor of fathers day he used his talents to pay homage to the many loving and dedicated fathers through music. Anonymous 127 kept his his true identity hidden from the listeners to emphasis his work with the music and to promote the positive aspects of fatherhood. Having no children of his own, Anonymous 127 credits the inspiration behind the lyrics in his song to the strong influential male figures in his life, as well as his mother.

Later in the show Harmonie and Rec were joined by the Futuristik Boys, a young up and coming hip-hop duo out of Lawrence, Ma.
