SONG SPOTLIGHT: GET LIVE BY STRANGE FRUIT PROJECT


by petercortle | August 5, 2010

Alright, so we harp on “new-school” a lot here at Life Changing Apparel, but it’s out of love, dammit. And by no means do we think there’s only good stuff to be found in the present–there are plenty of acts from the past ten years that were tragically looked over whom we would LOVE to write about on the daily. But, when we’re looking to change the world in style, there’s rarely good in looking towards the past.

So today, we’re treating ourselves. Reintroducing, the Strange Fruit Project–one of the most soulful, funky rap collectives to come around since the birth of the New South. Their lyrics are unapologetically country, with a level of coherency and consciousness that balances entertainment with awareness. Check out their video with songstress/MC Erykah Badu, “Get Live,” and vibe to some tunes that you should have heard three years ago.
