In support of the September 9 Nationwide Prison Shutdown and in response to the first cut of NINE NINE Decarcerate release, an artist group has been formed by an organizer of the Free Ohio Movement to unite especially youthful artists in expressions against mass incarceration and enslavement.



According to a Facebook group that has formed, called 9 Nine HIP HOP Collective  the groups purpose is as follows:
This group is assembled to create, video and represent those who are in the area of H.I.P. H.O.P., But who also believe in the Freedom Movement. We ask that you check out the video and consider if you would like to be a part of this project. This is a NATIONAL and INTERNATIONAL effort. So if you know of someone who may want to assist, please add them to the group.https://m.soundcloud.com/bohiti/nine-nine-decarcerate .

The song was iniitally recorded by Oskar Castro, a Philadelphia based decarceration activist and artist (a.k.a Bohiti) from lyrics published at this blog site in the following link:

The initial launch of the recording was first published here:

According to some of the dialogue at the Facebook site,

"This group is assembled to create, video and represent those who are in the area of H.I.P. H.O.P., But who also believe in the Freedom Movement. We ask that you check out the video and consider if you would like to be a part of this project. This is a NATIONAL and INTERNATIONAL effort. So if you know of someone who may want to assist, please add them to the group. https://m.soundcloud.com/bohiti/nine-nine-decarcerate "

The groups founder Queen Tahiyrah suggests in response to an inquiry on what the goals are:
". . . 
 add lyrics to the basic beat so that when we get ready to mass it up on the state level, it should be easier to mix.... For Ohio it is our goal to get artists from each city and so far you are our rep for Co.... Feel free to add to the music on your own but the basic beat, I want to try to keep.... I'm open though, so if you have any ideas, toss em out! You are so lyrically creative, you can make your own and one with our beats.... we will promote whatever you submit, as long as it is 9Nine based...."

Queen Tahiyrah stresses:
"
I do not wan people thinking they have to work via me. I want those who are down to put something together and share it.... I am willing to be a point of contact though...."

The idea is that all materials will be shared among the artists - raw clips and completed cuts - new lyrics can be written and hopefully clips from inside facilities can be incorporated.

For now, please share this link especially among the youth and encourage participation - please also share fhe link to the initial video:
