the HoodHippie$



Founded by Bay Area HoodHippie$ Amutabi Todaii Haines and Amani Will / Wa Ama & the Lion Truth -- offered up as an artist collective, and an experiment in the merging of edge zones, the de-centralizing of power, and the Banding Together in Creative Liberation.


So far we make Ascen-Dance Music; Bay Area Hip-Hop; Experimental Freak Folk; Psychedelic Prayer Poetry; Chants, Rounds, and the songs of our Ancestors remixed through Freestyle Listening. 


We are a Band of story tellers, educators, artivists, healers, and earth workers, amplifying the frequencies that set us free and show us how free we already are.
