The Rebel Beat Se2 Ep10 – Alas Spits Decolonizing Fire

Welcome back to the latest edition of The Rebel Beat!

Our special guest this month is Alas. Alas is an MC who is consistently spitting out pure revolutionary fire, and when she’s not on the mic, you can probably find her on the front lines of the struggle to decolonize Turtle Island. You might already be familiar with her work with Savage Fam, who we’ve also interviewed on this show, and we had a chance to talk to her about the time she spent at Standing Rock in so-called North Dakota last winter. Check out her Bandcamp page!

Also, if you like this show, please support it! The podcast is free, it always will be, but if you wanna support revolutionary music being pumped into your ears and podcast apps every month, please consider throwing us a 1 or 2 bucks per episode. You can support us on our Patreon page: www.patreon.com/rebelbeatradio

Or if you want to make a one-time donation, we’ve got a big Paypal button at the top of our website, which you can find at rebelbeatradio.com.

For our Turn It Up segment, we look at 2 very different but very important struggles:

-The battle to save Radio Centre-Ville, a long-running multi-lingual community radio station in Montreal. To find out more, visit:

-The “Battle of Berkley” on April 15, when anti-fascists confronted neo-nazis, fascists, and other Trump supporters in the Bay area. For more info and reporting, visit:

Boooom! Welcome back to another weekly podcast of The Rebel Beat! Our special guest on the show this week is Indigenous MC HellnBack.

His latest album is called F.O.E.=Family Over Everything, and we talked with HellnBack about his long career in the game, the importance of family, and using hip-cover170x170hop as a tool of resistance to fight back against suicide and depression.

So we hear a report-back from that tour, a report-back from Mayday, and TONS of anti-colonial hip-hop. Continue reading
