ALL PROCEEDS TO GO TO THE ACLU.
Idols + Enemies includes features from artists such as Killer Mike, Moor Mother, Sad13 (Sadie Dupuis of Speedy Ortiz), Billy Woods, Khruangbin, and more. In addition to the musical guests, the highly political project includes recordings from several significant activists and academics to provide a wide spectrum of perspectives on the current political climate in America, from voices such as Jedediah Purdy, Nikesh Shukla, and Sut Jhally. Says Lushlife on the project, "November's dystopian presidential election sent all of us looking for answers. My Idols Are Dead + My Enemies Are In Power brings together artists, activists, and academics to explore how we got here, and what to do next. We stand with poor folks, Muslims, people of color, the LGBTQ community, and all Americans against any attack on our civil rights."
To coincide with the release of Idols + Enemies, Lushlife has created a new website that provides contextual information for the project, calls to action, and an integrated Rap Genius-powered lyrics page, where fans can annotate and discuss the full lyrics to the mixtape.
The tape is intended as a direct response to Donald Trump’s election and inauguration, and Lushlife isn’t offering it as a free download
Lushlife has shared a new mixtape called My Idols Are Dead + My Enemies Are in Power. All proceeds from sales of the tape—available for one dollar or more—will benefit the American Civil Liberties Union, and it features appearances from Killer Mike, Moor Mother, Kool A.D., Sad13, and others.
