About this project

Emerald Manifesto is my second solo album and follow up to the Carbon Cycle Diaries LP-- the album has a spiritual environmental focus and continues where CCD left off, speaking about social and political issues of consequence.  The track 'Dalit' touches upon the plight of Dalit caste people living in South Asia, while storytelling tracks like 'Still I Rise' tackle issues of slavery.  The title track takes perma-culture and gives it focus it rarely receives in the hip-hop genre and 'Earth Song' laments the pain mother earth has suffered, for our uncaring ways.  

This is a socially conscious, spiritually motivated album which is tied to the spirit of educating the masses...  Or at least it plans to be with your help and support.
