[VIDEO] Georgia Anne Muldrow - 'Pop Iconz'

Popular singer/producer Georgia Anne
Muldrow has made a name for herself
and her creative stylings for years either
on her own or with Stones Throw Records.
In this new video, she calls out the growing
corporate movements that depend on
taking advantage of the youth. In her own

We as parents have to walk a very fine line between being
watchful and overprotective of what our kids are exposed to
…and that job is being made even more difficult by the
hyper-sexual, consumerist and vain aesthetic packed with
visual associations that are intentionally targeting the pre-teen
generation. I’m placing the blame on the corporate agenda that
abuses the minds and souls of talented or even aspiring artists.

To represent an awareness that is willfully avoidant of self-realization
is the bottom line for these influencers of consciousness; if someone’s
life goals are completely external his/her mind can easily be subdued
and controlled.

Art means too much to me, i ain’t having it.
