Father’s Day is a day for reverence for our father figures, and Hip Hop as a whole does not pay its respects to all of the good fathers in our community. Producers and Fathers Metaphysic and Amond Jackson, have put together a hip hop tribute to all Fathers and the relationship they share with their children. The project entitled “Soil: The Warrior Lessons” pulls together uncompromising people from the hip hop community sharing wisdom for our kids over Amond’s and Metaphysic’s beats with special guests producers. Hip Hop notables like J-Live, DJ Applejac, Flyod the Locsmif, Illastrate, M1 of Dead Prez, Homeboy Sandman, Supa Dave West, John Robinson, DJ Amdex and many others will speak to their seeds and share the feelings and information they need to know. This project should be the soundtrack to your Father’s Day and provide encouragement for you and your young ones.

“Soil” is everything a parent provides for their children or “seeds.” Metaphysic describes the project’s title in this way: “Just like in nature our children, our “seeds” can’t grow alone once planted. They need the proper care in order to flourish. The soil is the nourishment parents must provide in order for our youth to grow strong roots and flourish. With the right soil our youth can properly develop into productive, self reliant and creative contributors to the human family.” Amond and Meta intend for this project to be a gift for Fathers to share with their children to provide alternative perspectives from mainstream music and media. This project also serves as a time capsule that generations in the future can listen to and see what these group of fathers and fathers-to-be had on their minds.

The sense of community among fathers is a major theme for this project. Amond and Meta have brought together many different voices in hip hop; DJs, MCs, B-Boys, Producers, Writers, Videographers, and Freedom Fighters have all contributed to this inspirational instrumental project. The music will be free, so listeners can expect to hear a wide range of vibes and sounds. “Soil: The Warrior Lessons” will be a free download availble Father’s Day June 20, 2010.

(Bio Courtesy of www.theforeignexchangemusic.com)

Consisting of rapper/singer/songwriter Phonte and producer Nicolay, The Foreign Exchange came together via the online hip-hop community Okayplayer.com in 2002. After trading files through Instant Messenger for over a year, Nicolay (living in his native Holland at the time) and Phonte (a Raleigh, NC resident) completed their debut album before they ever met each other in person. The album, “Connected,” was released in 2004 to positive reviews, and was praised by legendary DJ’s such as Jazzy Jeff, King Britt, and DJ Spinna for its inventive mix of hip-hop, R&B, and electronica.

Their sophomore album, “Leave It All Behind” (2008) found The Foreign Exchange much closer in geography (Nicolay becoming a resident of Wilmington, NC), but located much further from their hip-hop origins. On the strength of their exhilarating live show and several nationally programmed music videos, “Leave It All Behind” became the group’s most successful album to date, culminating in a Grammy-nomination for the album’s first single, “Daykeeper”.

The Foreign Exchange are currently working on their third album, Authenticity, to be released on October 12, 2010 on +FE Music.

Serves 4

  • 100g broad beans 750g
  • roast chicken, bones removed and cut into thin slices
  • 1kg watermelon (about 1/2 small watermelon), peel removed and thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch trimmed watercress
  • 1 ripe avocado, sliced
  • 25g pine nuts, toasted
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

Steam or boil the broad beans for 4 minutes – they are cooked when they rise to the surface and feel tender. Drain and rinse under cold water immediately to keep them green and fresh.

Combine the chicken with the watermelon, watercress and avocado in a large salad bowl. Scatter over the broad beans and pine nuts. Mix the lemon juice and olive oil together and season with plenty of freshly ground pepper.

Drizzle over the salad just before serving.
