Guante: Conscious is Not Enough Mixtape + Essay
Local rapper/activist/spoken word artist/Reviler writer Guante is a man of many skills, a few of which are combined on his latest effort. He is re-releasing his Mix tape Conscious is Not Enough, which he originally created in 2008, with updates and new songs that make the “current events” referenced in the songs “current.” In addition to the new mix tape, which you can find HERE, Guante wrote a essay on what makes effective “conscious” hip hop, which you can find at his site. He touched on the subject in the past for Reviler, and as always he was eloquent and thought provoking in his new essay. The mix tape is only available for one week, so scoop it up while you can.
