Orisha inspired Oakland, CA resider Adimu Madyun a.k.a. WolfHawkJaguar will release Hunters Poetry soon, and has tossed us a stellar video for the first single, "Throw The Rope." The song is inspired by Madyun reaching higher ground through a seven year practice with a powerful diviner of Esu at the Corner House in Oakland. During this time Madyun reconnects to his ancestors and transcends the African history of slave masters and oppressors. Quoting Madyun, "Once you know the truth and worth of your root, separation and alienation can no longer occur, all that's left to do... 'Throw The Rope.'" Get intrigued by the video above!
