Weekend Reading 39
An update on the progress of the collaborative mix tape ‘Can’t Stop The Hustle’; it should be done next month, projected release on the 5th. I got an update from James Dehuelves, one of the originators, and he answered a few questions for me…
How many artists came together for this project?
Ten to fifteen; Mistha Fire, Jose Martinez, LJ Blaze Records and Calico Records, Roy Sandoval, Lumbrera Wedell G-Fo Mendez and DJ Faze and also Lady Smiles, ak47, Big Papa El Asesino, also Dropp Topp Records. There’s a lot of labels from up north and down south. This mix tape is going world-wide.
Who’s going to love this mixtape?
I hope everyone does!
Do you have any more upcoming projects? Tell us a little about them.
Yes I do; I’m working on the Lansing take-over and still will be pushing Can’t Stop the Hustle, the movement until they free the Mexican and even after. I’m working with some new artists, also networking down south a lot and I hope this project will have a vol. 2.
I really admire all the people that came together to work on this, and I’m looking forward to seeing it finished; this is the kind of awareness-raising that I believe is going to be instrumental in reaching people who may otherwise not have heard the truth.
Note: This is not an SPM album, but a project whose goal is to let people know what's going on.
