Download Open Mike Eagle & Ras G's project in Uganda.


Last June we premiered a track off L.A. emcee Open Mike Eagle and Brainfeeder producer Ras G's  project in Uganda — in which they taught a youth program about hip-hop and recorded with local artists. You can now download the full Kampala Blackouts album for free below, accompanied by a short documentary from non-profit J.U.I.C.E. who sponsored the project.
