July 2010 - January 2013
Jus Rhyme & Toussaint Morrison - A Tour for a Cause
Tuesday, October 04, 2011

Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia. They’re not just three major metropolises in the US, they’re three of the ten most segregated cities in the country. When Jus Rhyme and Toussaint Morrison saw the full list they came up with a plan - embark on a tour of all ten cities and create a discussion about the forces that are creating this segregation. Jus points to some startling statistics on the subject, noting “one in six people in the US are impoverished right now. That’s more people than in the 1950s. US schools are more segregated by race than in 1950. Do you know how we deal with that? This is how we decided to deal with it, not more schools, not more houses, more prisons. One out of every 100 people in the US are in prison or jail. We incarcerate more people than any country in the whole world. If you include people on parole three out of every 100 people in the US are under the criminal justice system. Toussaint and I think we can do better and we want to see people come together and let’s change this.”

The Segregated City Tour is their opening salvo in this battle to make things better and this week I caught up with both Jus Rhyme, who some may remember from his time on VH1’s The White Rapper Show, and Toussaint Morrison, to find out more about the tour, the kind of social action they’re hoping to spark, and why they’re only asking for half of what they need with their Kickstarter campaign.

B-Lister Nation
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
