Over the last two years or so, a Rap Renaissance has been rumbling in the heart of Detroit. 

Next weekend, the Renaissance comes to Ann Arbor. The #CoOwnaz collective features a range of emcees, each blessed and blemished with their own blue-collar weirdness and disarmingly erudite penmanship. The group’s membership is slightly amorphous and their headquarters are only loosely identified as a loft in Eastern Market, but nevertheless, some of its most talented clientele are roadtripping together, like a traveling revue ala Motown’s caravan of recording artists back in the 60’s, over to the Blind Pig, to help send off on a European tour one of their most industrious comrades, Dante LaSalle.

That said… Let’s have a sampling of songs:
Dante LaSalle: “Mr. Merriweather Hustle Anthem”

Doc Waffles: “Hockey Fights”

Sleepless Inn: “Escalators”

#CoOwnaz at The Blind Pig – September 18th – 9:30 pm

Featuring:
Charles Trees
Eddie Logix
Jaws That Bite
Dante LaSalle
Doc Waffles 
Sleepless Inn

Have We Met?—The Dialogue Between Past and Present

It is heartrending to see that message, reverberated through the past and into the present. Cynics may be tempted to ask, “Have we really made any progress?”. Yet, above the calls of protest and activism, the gallery is also filled with silence, waiting for the viewer’s response to the question, “Will you change it?”

Moore Takes Aim at Both Parties in Fahrenheit 11/9

Flint’s story is essential to the film because it illustrates the power of greed and why corporate money has no place in government. Macroeconomics 101 tells us that corporations are beholden to one thing—their stockholders. Humans do not enter into this equation. How can you have a democracy for the people when corporate money runs the government? You can’t.

The Kelloggs—The Battling Brothers of Battle Creek

Following Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, a prodigious doctor whose ecstasy over medicine overshadowed his regard for those closest to him, and his striving younger brother W.K., who toiled unappreciated under his brother before setting off on his own to great fame and success.
