Artists like Immortal Technique and M-1 of dead prez are known as what some call “conscious emcees,” tagged with the perception that they are all about humanitarian work. While they may not like to be boxed into perceived roles musically, they are certainly living up to their reputation in some positive ways. In an effort to raise money for Gaza relief, Tech, M-1 and others are set to perform and appear at a fundraiser this weekend. Hands Off Gaza will be held on January 18.
Immortal Technique, G.O.D., M-1 of dead prez, A-Alikes, Rebel Diaz, Remi Kanazi, Tahani Salah, Khalil al Mustafa, Hasan Salaam, Marcel Cartier, Sabreena Da Witch, and DJ Johnny Juice are all set to appear at the fundraiser held at New York’s Alwan for the Arts. It will take place from 5 – 7 p.m.
