Got this from Grandmaster Chu and I thought I’d just quote him:

I just launched a project here in Beijing and online, and was hoping you might help get the word out. THE UNCOOL is an extended mixtape with tracks of hip-hop, pop/r&b, and spoken word poetry, all dealing with hope, healing, and brokenness. The regular version is a free download; the special edition is $5, with 3 extra songs, lyrics & commentary, and accompanying photographs. All profits from the special edition go to the Red Thread Movement, a charity that works to provide education and employment for at-risk girls and women rescued from the illegal sex trade in Nepal.

THE UNCOOL is available now at Grandmaster’s bandcamp site. The regular edition is free to stream and download, the Special Edition includes three new songs, photos, commentary, and lyrics and goes for $5. All proceeds go to the Red Thread Movement.

And here’s an interview with Chu explaining what the Red Thread Movement is and why the project is so important to him.

    It’s great when musicians do stuff that supports causes they care about. This seems genuine.
