Sunday Night Jam Sessions

Grayskull: Seasoned veterans of the rap game and sharing stages with rap luminaries too varied to list entirely, they have spent the last 5 years touring extensively with their Oldominion crew as well as the Def Jux and Rhymesayers camps. The Grayskul live show itself is unique in that it consists of 2 emcees (Reason & Recluse), live bass (Phantom Ghost El Topo) and a DJ. They're no strangers to the recording studio either, with previous solo projects and appearances on Oldominion crew albums. They've apparently impressed their peers in the industry as well, as they have attracted guest appearances from legendary battle emcee Canibus, current indie Hip Hop idol Aesop Rock, Project Blowed heavyweight Abstract Rude and Howard Zinn's favorite rapper, Mr. Lif.

Oscar Brown Jr: Oscar Brown, Jr (October 10, 1926–May 29, 2005) was a singer, songwriter, playwright, poet, and civil rights activist. He ran for office in the Illinois state legislature and U.S. Congress, both unsuccessfully. Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, he was named for his father who was a successful attorney and real estate broker. His singing debut was on the radio show Secret City at age fifteen. Brown attended Englewood High School in Chicago, the University of Wisconsin, and Lincoln University (Pennsylvania) but did not obtain a degree. He served a stint in the U.S. Army, officially segregated until 1948, where his views on "race relations" were considered "subversive."[citation needed] In his youth, he was even a member of the Communist Party, USA, which ultimately also decided Oscar was "too subversive"; he was suspected to be a Black Nationalist.[citation needed]

X-Clan: Known for its Afrocentrism and militant activism (they were members of Blackwatch), X-Clan soon gained fame for the controversy its music aroused, though commercial success was sporadic. Its debut was To the East, Blackwards (1990), followed by Xodus (1992), and a temporary break-up. Both albums peaked at #11 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip Hop Charts in the United States. They also coined the made-up word “vanglorious,” not to be confused with vainglorious, as a way to say Thanks but no thanks to Noah Webster (citation needed).
