Another number to add to today's eco-friendly playlist: "Earth Day" by Wafeek
, from The Aristocrats Mixtape,
released at the end of last year (and covered in this article
from the RFT).
Anyone who gives a damn about the environment knows local is always better and this song has a pair of St. Louis ties: Wafeek was born and raised in the 314 (he now calls LA home) and it's produced by Stoney Rock aka Black Spade.
While you've probably heard of "conscious" hip-hop before, this might be the only "environmentally conscious" hip-hop song ever written. And with lines like "Wipe my ass with the trees that give me air to breathe" it has to be the best.
