3 Revolutionary Videos to Get U Hyped-Sista Souljah, Paris, Aztlan Nation


Looking through some old videos and decided to post a few to put you in the Revolutionary spirit.

I remember this video and this album 360 Degrees of Power.. The beats, made by the bomb squad  were incredible and Sista Souljah who was an activist made the nice switch into the rap world. I wish they promoted her album a bit more and gave her more of a shot… definitely a nice cut..

This was one of my favorite songs from Paris the Black Panther of Hip Hop. I remember when the video was shot.. we had no idea how powerful those images would be, especially when since they were being shown on MTV.. We need more songs like this and outlets to accommodate them..

Aztlan Nation made a lot of noise back in the early 90s. This Oakland based group were activist who used Hip Hop as a way to get their messages across..loved this video they did back in the days..‘Home of the Brave’ was a dope album

  1. Thanks Dave for this article. Loved Paris from day one and I just came across Souljah’s cd from my collection after moving. Man this was a good cd and it should’ve been promoted more.

    For those that don’t have it, get it! She has some real good uplifting lyrics and she is the truth!

  2. Thanks Bro. Davey for posting these three wonderful songs and videos.
    Sista Souljah’s album, “360 Degrees of Power” was EXTREMELY DOPE, but it got slept on big time. I thought the lyrical content, production and overall message were just right on her album. I remember The Source magazine giving her album two out five stars, which I thought was ridiculous. The style she had in the early 90’s is the same style I hear many spoken word artists use today. I think it would have been of a huge benefit if more Black women were familiar with her and her music.
    Paris has always been on point with everything since coming out with his first album, all the way up to now. When I first heard his first album, I was blown away, and liked his music ever since.
    I am not very familiar with Aztlan Nation, but I am really diggin this song and video. I admire how they expressed pride in there heritage through their music and video. It also showed how they were dealing with the same issues that African Americans were (and still are) dealing with.
    I wish so much that this style of HipHop was more available to the people on radio and television. These messages are empowering, uplifting, and overall, GOOD music!
    Thanks again Bro. Davey!
