Uncommon Records is one of our favorite HipHop labels and they just released a Japan benefit album for 5 dollars with ALL proceeds go towards Second Harvest, a soup kitchen and food pantry that operates in Japan and is helping out with the disaster relief going on now. They got a few remixes here but mostly original tracks from the emcees you all have come to know and love out of Uncommon, so quality of the music is obviously not in question. I'm already enjoying the album and at the same time give much needed help to our Japan brothers and sisters, I hope everyone can find it in their heart to pay the 5 dollars that we can waste on nonsense daily towards a good cause. It's great to see a label come together and show their support by noticing the worlds problems are not just theirs but ours.
Check out what they have to say on the project: "The Sun Never Sets" as we said, is one of our new "Pop Up Albums", and just like a Pop Up Restaurant or Pop Up Record store, it will only be around for a limited time. In this case, we will make this available for 30 Days (3/18-4/18). ONE HUNDRED PERCENT OF THE MONEY RAISED FROM SALES OF THIS ALBUM WILL BE DONATED FOR JAPAN RELIEF. We hope to make an announcement on the total, large or small, one month from now. We hope it's as large as possible.
