Stream the New Album From the Kid-Friendly Hip-Hop Collective Alphabet Rockers
For decades, activism has been synonymous with Oakland, California.
That activist-spirt can be found in the music scene.
Alphabet Rockers is a kid-friendly hip-hop collective from the city. The two core members are Kaitlin McGaw and Tommy Shepherd. The collective have just released their new album Rise Shine #Woke. The album follows the release of their Alphabet Rockers EP, which came out last year.
The songs on the album are socially conscious, feel-good jams made for children to get involved. Speaking on the album and their work, McGaw says “We want families to join us in making change.”
“Being woke is nothing new but right now it’s crucial for folks who are too comfortable in their lifestyles to get involved in this movement. This album is an entry point.”
The first single from the album is “Shine,” which they released back in August. Stream the album and watch the video below.
