VIDEO: "The Block" by Akua Naru feat. Drea D'Nur
Every once in a while I post music that tells the stories of the streets because street lit and hip hop inform one another quite intimately. Hip hop artist Akua Naru's piece, "The Block" paints a hauntingly vivid picture of the harsh realities that happen on "The Block". Enjoy and share this video with adults and teens at your library and in your classrooms. They will love Queen Akua Naru; they will hear her call.
