Shining Soul- "No Mercy" (Official Music Video)



Directed by Salvador Angel Robledo and Shanice Malakai of THUG HIPPY
Filmed in Occupied Phoenix, AZ and Tohono O'odham Nation

"This is a time to stop pleading for human rights and to start demanding justice. We need to identify and attack the root causes of the oppressions we face that continue to divide us internally as a movement. We need to say a lot more about the international trade policies that continue to uproot people from their homes. Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) is clearly not a people’s solution. Profiting off our demise as a raza and converting Indigenous territories to paramilitary police states is big business for government officials, corporations, and NGO's promoting these reforms. We need to be in the business of asking critical questions to be a stronger, united force in responding to this attack and fight back!"

Red/Brown solidarity is a MUST!
Hip Hop is Resistance! 

We are anti/non-corporate, pro-independent hustle, hip hop artists, so when the video drops, PLEASE SHARE THIS with the world!!! Share the link on your Facebook, send it to a friend, share it on your Twitter, post a pick of it on Instagram and/or whatever you use for social media!

SHINING SOUL RELEASE THEIR SECOND FULL LENGTH MUSIC PROJECT “SONIC SMASH”

WELCOME TO SONIC SMASH! 
Our new full length project. Download it and share it with your peoples!




Two years after releasing our first full length project “We Got This”, our long overdue second full-length project “SONIC SMASH” is available to the world! SONIC SMASH exemplifies our diversity in flavor and subject matter (such as the criminalization and militarization of indigenous and migrant peoples), while sharing and maintaining the essence of Hip-Hop culture.  


Premiering the single/music video “Get Up” and politically charged banger “No Mercy”, which is our response to anti-immigrant/pro-border militarization hysteria in this country, SONIC SMASH fully exhibits their diverse range of skills and material, let alone commitment to revolutionary change in our respected communities of Phoenix, Arizona and the Tohono O'odham Nation.

Featuring guest appearances by Brad B of The Insects, Albuquerque's premier hip hop group Definition Rare, Mr. Miranda of Writers Guild, Mykr Fiend X of the Avenue of Arts crew, Phoenix hip hop legend Nutmeg, vocalist Amber Dirks, DJ Reflekshin, Tucson's DJ Alias, and guest producers Rough Draft of the SYNCRONAUTS, DN3 of Writers Guild, Gunky Knuckles, and Oakland live beat maestro B. Durazzo!

Mixed and Mastered by Ty Kemp @ Wh0biz Pros 

Album art work by Rack & Stack


SONIC SMASH is available to download as of September 10, 2013. Check it!
