This is MC Geologic, a Filipino-American rapper, activist, and filmmaker based in Seattle. Paired with DJ/Producer Sabazi they make the group the Blue Scholars. I met em back in Madison a few years back.
I’ve been bumpin’ their recently released Cinemetropolis album all summer. Especially where I’m at now, an artist residency in white, white, SUPER white Grinnell, Iowa. Yes, tracks about Yuri Kochiyama get me through the heat.
And that’s sexy, when you can make me feel more at home, more safe.
I’ve posted a few shirtless, shameless, indulgent Asian male photos. And I don’t think I’m going to stop that. But yeah, this is what really gets me going, and I mean get up and going to keep creating because its mutual respect.
Check em out, book ‘em, buy the album
A snip from the Blue Scholars’ bio:
“Since 2002, Blue Scholars have been based in the 98118, decreed the most ethnically diverse zip code in America by the 2010 Census. Like the greater Seattle region, that neighborhood embodies the multi-cultural miasma that spawned Blue Scholars, the joining of forces between an Iranian DJ/producer and a Filipino rapper. These are dudes who nourish their bodies with Vietnamese coffee, Ethiopian injera, and steaming bowls of phở. “
