Hip Hop for Humanity

The Hip Hop Hoodios are rapping political. The Latino Jewish musical duo, who on August 7 released the new five-song EP “Viva la Guantanamera” (a digital-only release available online), are donating 18% of net profits from sales of the record’s single of the same name to Amnesty International’s efforts to close the Guantanamo Bay prison.

A number of guests join the Hoodios on the track, including Frank London and Lorin Sklamberg of the Klezmatics, rapper Kemo the Blaxican and instrumentalist Walter Miranda.
