music video: "stand my ground" by mondega

This recommendation comes from our man Lac, spreading the word about his friend, up and coming emcee Mondega, who just released his official debut album For the People. It's described as "Asian Hip Hop for higher achievement." Here's the music video for his single "Stand My Ground." Take a look:

Here's some background information on For the People:
Mondega amplifies the indigenous peoples cry for basic human rights destroyed by corrupt laws after decades of genocide, war, economic exploitation and social degradation from Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand and Burma. The entire album is ordered in a chronological format that shift the listeners from chaos and warfare to immigration and culture shock in America. The struggle continue as a young man leaves the streets to balance love, family, friendship and music in a country where Asian American acts are rarely supported by the mainstream audience
If you're diggin' what, the CD is currently available for order from Blacklava. For more information about Mondega and his music, go to his website here. To see lots more Mondega videos, go to the TraySetterz YouTube channel here.
