Gyasi Ross “Winona LaDuke” from the album Isskootsik (Before Here was Here)

Author, activist, attorney and Native American spoken-word artist Gyasi Ross, releases his album Isskootsik (Before Here was Here) today! We’ve heard rap tracks from the gang banging streets of America to pouring money out of bottles at the clubs. This album is a refreshing change of pace in the rap game offering a well spoken poetic reality of the world that we live in through the eyes of a true Native American. You can expect a forceful collection ranging from historical facts, to dreams of love, death and loathing.

Check out “Winona LaDuke” from the album Isskootsik (Before Here was Here)

“Winona LaDuke” is, obviously, an homage to the amazing mother, writer and activist Winona LaDuke. More broadly, however, it is an evolutionary tale of the cathartic power of female energy and strong women generally.

Isskootsik is available now on iTunes via Cabin Games Records. The release is driven by powerful original music under the guidance of Cabin Games producer Kjell Nelson, featuring Slug of Atmosphere, Aboidun Oyewole of The Last Poets, and Northwest Independent music legend Steve Fisk, as well as traditional Native American performances from Nakoa HeavyRunner and Sacred Water.
