The Reality Principle -Episode 24

“More than Music” with Rebel Diaz

RPLogoThis week, Eric sits down with hip hop artists Rebel Diaz for a wide-ranging discussion about music, art, politics, and much more. Eric and the guys (RodStarz & G1) discuss the political and class nature of hip hop and why we should be wary of romanticizing hip hop and its legacy. They also tell us about the Rebel Diaz Art Collective and the politically motivated assault against the space and themselves as community organizers and leaders. Additionally, Eric and Rebel Diaz explore the legacy of Hugo Chavez and the global impact he had. Specifically, they examine the importance of the Bolivarian Revolution both in the context of Latin America and poor people around the world.

Rebel Diaz is an independent hip hop group based in the South Bronx, New York City. They are activists and organizers, as well as widely respected performers with fans all over the world.
