Hip-hop artist marks 60th anniversary of Cuban revolution with new mix tape

Issue 

On July 26, radical hip-hop producer Agent of Change released a "beat tape" to mark the 60th anniversary of the start of the Cuban Revolution.

Agent of Change, also known as London-based activist and writer Carlos Martinez, said: "The 18 hip-hop instrumentals - with a couple of feature verses from Fidel Castro and Nelson Mandela - celebrate Cuban culture, drawing influence and samples from Cuba’s diverse musical heritage."

He also wrote a strongly-argued, extensive article "detailing some of the things that make Cuba worthy of support", here.

Listen to the beat tape below.
