Propaganda (Hip Hop)

Christian rapper and poet Propaganda first became known as part of the pioneering underground rap collective the Tunnel Rats. Born Jason Petty, the Los Angeles-based musician adopted the stage name Propaganda early in his career, joining the Tunnel Rats just prior to their 2003 album Underground Rise, Vol. 1: Sunrise/Sunset, a compilation featuring a variety of different rappers both Christian and secular. As their youngest member, Propaganda found himself contributing on several tracks, which led to his first solo album, Out of Knowhere, being released by the Rats' then label, Uprok Records, later that year. His intelligent lyrics were a product of his passion for poetry, and his smooth, unique style earned him respect in the underground rap world. He contributed to the Tunnel Rats' self-titled third album in 2004 before the group went on hiatus. A 2006 EP called I Am Not Them appeared on the Rats' own Tunnel Rat Music label before he joined a Rats-affiliated offshoot group called Footsoldiers. That same year, Footsoldiers delivered their debut, Live This, and collaborated with rapper KRS-One on his album Life.

Propaganda continued to work prolifically, independently releasing a second solo EP, The Sketchbook: A Small Collection of Unreleased Material, followed by his second LP, Listen Watch Focus, on End of Earth Records, both in 2008. Things began to pick up for him once he signed with the Portland-based label Humble Beast Records. His first release for the label was a collaboration with Portland rapper Odd Thomas called Art Ambidextrous in 2011. He followed it up in 2012 with his third solo album, Excellent, which charted at number seven on the Billboard Top Gospel chart. Over the years, his sound developed in intensity and focus, marketing to the Christian community but winning plenty of secular fans as well for his thoughtful, unique work. Artistically, he had found a good fit with Humble Beast and he paired with labelmates Beautiful Eulogy, who produced his fourth album, 2014's Crimson Cord. Continuing his ambitious run, Propaganda's next project was a 2015 book titled I Am Becoming, which paired his poetry with a series of photos by Oakland-based photographer Khristopher Squints. ~ Timothy Monger

The nearest Friday you will be kissed by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be a great day for you however if you do not repost this you will be injured but not dead. You have 143 minutes to repost this on 5 different songs. Then press 6 and the love of your life's name will appear on the screen.

God has truly blessed me with your words, his words. He has brought me wonderful things in life. Prior to discovering your music I started to come out of a certain melancholy state of mind due to earlier in the day I had gotten a job interview and it felt very positive, a new path, an exciting change. After I got home that day I had a hard emotional/me n t a l drop and felt very weak and lost and then among the music I was listening to, Pandora brought up your music and I realized that it would be

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. However if you post this you will be injured (but you won't die) in the next two days. Now you started reading so don't stop. Post this on at least five different songs in the next 143 minutes when you're done press f6 and tour lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works

Great stuff all around. I like getting a different point of view to consider. It keeps me in check and yearning to grow.
By the way, to the fellow a couple posts down, the Wall Street Journal posted an article in August of 2014 about yawning. It's much more complicated than fatigue and clear by the end that there's still more to learn.
