It is Lamar’s mix of introspection with political consciousness that has led many fans to consider him a voice for real people. Throughout DAMN., he relates how some consider him “anointed” and plead for him to guide and pray for them. In the video for “HUMBLE.,” he appears emblazoned with a tongue of fire, a Biblical image which signifies the guiding presence of the Holy Spirit, granting the apostles the ability to speak in languages previously unknown in order to spread the good word to all peoples. He embraces this role and intends to reach those who might not want to hear him. Of course, such responsibility can also be thankless, opening you up to personal attacks, pain and frustration. Lamar has gotten a lot of heat for his portrayal of police brutality in his music, videos and performances, mostly from tone-deaf talking heads like Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera (whose condemnation of Lamar’s lyrics is sampled directly on “DNA.”). We ask a lot of him, but he admits, “Ain’t nobody prayin’ for me.” DAMN. is a monument, a chronicle of the role of the artist and the self in a world standing on the edge of collapse. Kendrick Lamar is at his absolute best here. // To read Brady O’Callahan’s full article go to Indypendent.org // Illustration by Charlyne Alexis

At 75 years old, Stolar is a small, wiry man with a bounce in his step. When he isn’t due in court, he usually shows up to work in jeans and sneakers. His smile remains something of an undercurrent on his face — it gives his eyes a kind, crinkled look even when they are wide with indignation, as they often are when he talks about injustice. Yet he is still active, continuing to represent dissidents and work with the National Lawyers Guild’s (NLG’s) mass defense committee, where he helped represent thousands of protesters arrested during the 2004 Republican National Convention and at Zuccotti Park in 2011 during Occupy Wall Street. // To read Apoorva Tadepalli’s full article as published in the #April issue of #TheIndypendent go to Indypendent.org or click on the link i our bio.

Dozens of #NYC Taxi & Limousine drivers rally at the footsteps of NYC City Hall addressing the suicide of 4 drivers in 4 months due to the unequal competition that #Uber, #Lyft amongst others have brought to the city. // Foreclosures, bankruptcies and eviction notices are on the rise. Drivers are facing a vicious race to the bottom, brought on not by technology, but by a political economy that favors Wall Street over workers. It’s the front line of the gig economy. And drivers need armor in the fight of their lives - wrote Bhairavi Desai, executive director of the New York Taxi Workers Alliance, in the March issue of #TheIndypendent.

In #NY, however, bail bond companies are still legal. // To read Lydia Mcmullen-Laird’s full article go to Indypendent.org or click on the link in our bio
