Truth Universal--Authentic New Orleans Hip-Hop

Okay, I am new to the blog, but I am emcee/writer/producer/promoter/businessman Lyrikill. I represent the southern region generally and New Orleans specifically. I am on a mission to let everyone know tht hip-hop does live in the south, just not the through the corny mofos wearing those t-shirts saying it.

If you follow the New Orleans hip-hop scene at all, you know that Truth Universal has been a mainstay for the last 10 years, putting on various cats, including myself. He is an activist and emcee that is involved with everything from Black August, to Jazzfest, to the movement to free the Angola 3.

His latest video is "Work/Black Culture," directed by B Mike of 2Cent productions. His album is available at The original album version of Black Culture features the legendary Cee Know the Doodlebug (Digable Planets) and Wise Intelligent (Poor Righteous Teachers). Do your homework.

Another gem from Truth featuring Zion I "Mindframe"
