Raw Knowledge: Nemesis To Silence (2001)

Spoken word mostly pro-black and pro-female, accented by sporadic background music and samples ranging from Malcolm X speeches, Public Enemy, Nina Simone, Richard Pryor and N.W.A. among others. The uncensored, no holdsbarred approach to this project features a variety of women speaking original pieces in a rally against global marketing, prisons world economy, sexism, sweat shops and police brutality.
This project works well because it keeps the listener in tune by changed tempos and emotion. 23 tracks have music/sound accompaniment by such experimental heavyweights as Phantom Patient, dj 381–813, Maniac cop, Drowning Dog, dj slo-mo, david james, Bitter Pie and Healamonster & Tarsier.
