On #Jan25th

(Props to Nah Right for this)

The world has shifted its gaze towards Egypt since January 25th
due to the people's uprising against the oppression of the Hosni
Mubarak government. This track conveys the thoughts and ideas
of a select group of artists about the situation. More from the
press release below:

Inspired by the resilience of Egyptian people during their recent uprising,
several notable musicians from North America have teamed up to release
a song of solidarity and empowerment. The track is fittingly titled
“#Jan25″ as a reference to both the date the protests officially began
in Egypt, and its prominence as a trending topic on Twitter. Produced
by Sami Matar, a Palestinian-American composer from Southern California,
and featuring the likes of Freeway, The Narcicyst, Omar Offendum, HBO Def
Poet Amir Sulaiman, and Canadian R&B vocalist Ayah – this track serves as
a testament to the revolution’s effect on the hearts and minds of today’s
youth, and the spirit of resistance it has come to symbolize for oppressed
people worldwide.
