New visuals: Mic Jordan's "#DearNativeYouth"
Turtle Mountain's Mic Jordan released the music video for "#DearNativeYouth" today. The visuals and track precede the September debut of The Last Stand Mixtape, which brings together works by Frank Waln, Inez Jasper, Mic Jordan, and many others, in an effort to inspire and empower Native youth through spoken word, hip-hop, and collaborations therein.
With respect to the mixtape, Mic Jordan explains, "I stand for the youth: the the most powerful powerless human beings on the planet. By empowering the youth through music we can break the cycle of oppression.”
