Kevin Gates waives extradition to Illinois.
To show their full support on the ongoing protest of the Sioux Tribe in Standing Rock to stop the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, Mr. Carmack & Djemba Djemba decided to team up and drop a 9-track EP collaboration called, “Rekindling”, wherein 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the cause. After just 2 days of being released they’ve already reached their goal, and the EP is now available for free but you can still go donate to the cause if you choose to right here. The EP consists of 3 tracks from Mr. Carmack, 3 from Djemba Djemba, a collab track from the both of them, and 2 additional recordings of messages from protesters regarding the issue at hand.
You can hear 3 of the tracks and read Mr. Carmack’s full statement right here:

Here is the full statement from Mr. Carmack:
happy thanksgiving, and thank you for buying this album and supporting our cause. this EP is a stern reminder for all of us, not just to eat and be merry, but to take this particular holiday season to revisit and rekindle the flame in you. to take more of an active part in the world and not lie dormant. yes, you work to survive. but, what in your heart is your end goal? with whom lies your passion to expand your soul, to keep your heart pumping and allow you to express and to be yourself, fully? look for ways to maximize the health, and longevity not just for you, but for this earth as your guide, and believe me you will find that passion in you. too long you’ve been silenced, placated, ameliorated, flat out lied to, medicated, pilled, reprocessed, taken advantage of, snuffed out, desensitized, overstimulated, and stuffed with preservatives, processed sugars and white pills, monotonous music, mindless alternate realities on cable tv, brainless celebrity idols and carnival games to keep you entertained, like a baby.
no. what does this world need? who controls the world? and who’s controlling them? who’s there to tell them they’re fucking it up for everyone and they shouldn’t do that? not only for the sake of the wellbeing of earth, but for us as well? it is up to us. the people.
so, with that, after work next monday, don’t just go home and take to your tv or computer and turn your brain off. a paycheck is not your end goal in life. join a library. take a class. teach a class somewhere. read something. take up a hobby. paint outside. learn to plant a tree. cut meat out your diet. read up about clean energy tech. engage yourself. look into local farms. or just read, post and repost positive constructive shit on your social media.
its really not up to anyone, or any god, anymore., to tell us everything will be ok. i am not a baby. it is truly up to us as the most powerful species in the known universe and the sheer power of the instantaneous internet to shepherd this world in a positive direction for all of us. otherwise, we die. in any denominational way you choose.
