Listen to converstation between Sticman and Chelsea:
When I stepped onto the Atlanta scene in 1997 (fresh off Interstate 75 from Dayton, Ohio) my life changed. As a fresh(wo)man at Spelman College, my love for culture, hip hop, and most of all liberation music had a huge impact on my interest in personal wellness and Knowledge of Self. I was attracted to the type of music that provoked critical thought, reflection, and action.
One particular album directly shaped the way I thought about my position in this world and more importantly encouraged my activism with youth in my community and personal wellness. Let’s Get Free by duo dead prez, created songs like Be Healthy, Discipline, and I’m an African during the late 90s. Both M-1 and Sticman of Dead Prez continue to contribute to this world through their artistry and community engagement. I had the pleasure to catch up with Sticman and asked him questions about his path to practicing mindfulness and his current projects.
Hip hop artist, producer, and activist Sticman of the group Dead Prez has been a long time advocate for mental and physical wellness and is the founder of the RBG Fit Club. His latest solo album The Workout is completely dedicated to health & fitness. Stic is very much involved with his community (both locally and globally) through his blog where he offers support to those interested in maintaining mindfulness around personal wellness. Take a moment to listen to the conversation I had with Stic as he talks about the RBG Fit Club, his personal journey to wellness, and projects that are on the horizon.
