dcstatehoodfront-elitaste

We all know Tabi Bonney as the ill lyricist behind the Dope album, but he his now taking his local and national fame to the steps of Congress.

Bonney will team up with other local artists this  Wednesday to lobby Congress for the under-represented areas of the nation’s capitol.  Tabi will headline the free “Equal Footing” concert to be held at the west steps of the Capitol building on 1st starting starting at 5:30pm.

In recent years many artists have used their name recongition to ignite political activism and community service in their areas (although some have done so under court order).  Tabi had this to say about the focus of the event:

The political interest, it started, I would say with the Clintons, you saw little inklings of it, but definitely since the whole Barack Obama movement… you just see the movement of younger people carrying it and feeling that it’s something important, that we can all indeed make a difference.

So if you feel Tabi’s message and want to support it, or simply want to attend a free concert at the Capitol building be sure to check it out on April 1st, 5:30pm.

You should know this by now.
