“It’s energy. It’s genetic memory. I’m connected to the past present and future all at once.” -MC Rhetorik. Hailing from the Pueblo of Kewa, hip hop artist MC Rhetorik drops the ‘Abstract Thoughts’ album.
On August 10th, 1680 in the province of Santa Fe de Nuevo México, present day New Mexico, marked the start of an Indigenous uprising against the Spanish colonizers known as the Pueblo Revolt. The Pueblo’s, under the leadership of Popé and other Pueblo leaders, planned and orchestrated the revolt which resulted in successfully driving the Spanish out of their homelands.
On August 10, 2016, MC Rhetorik (Santo Domingo Pueblo) carries on this storied history of resistance by releasing the second part of his concept ‘Abstract Thoughts‘, with Abstract Thoughts the album.
What are your plans for the release of Abstract Thoughts
I’ll be releasing the album on-line on bandcamp.com for download. Today, I will be giving both a workshop and performing at the Youth Making a Change: Youth Conference in Albuquerque. I’m pretty honored and excited since the conference was entirely organized by our youth. That’s inspiring. From there I’ll be headed to Utah this weekend for a performance. In the future, the album will be available on CD.
