The Strength in NUMBERS train keeps rolling as we unveil the latest “variant” album cover to Chops’ massive Asian American hip-hop movement.
But first, Chops and the Strength in NUMBERS fam need your help! It’s called a Thunderclap, a free, quick, safe way to “donate” a tweet, Facebook post, or Tumblr post (or all 3) to promote our Strength In NUMBERS project. Tomorrow, everybody’s posts will blast out all at once! But we need to hit 250 supporters for it to work!
Now, on to the latest Strength in NUMBERS album cover featuring the groundbreaking female emcee from Jersey EL GAMBINA illustrated by the Emmy-nominated artist Jeremy Arambulo.
After the jump, download a high-resolution jpeg of the latest Strength in NUMBERS alternate album cover. Just right-click on the image and save.
NAME: EL GAMBINA
KNOWN FOR: Member of group Organic Thoughts (see “Get It Right” with Peril-L of Mountain Brothers), El is regarded as a groundbreaker for female Asian American emcees.
STRENGTH: Conversational chill flow with knowledge.
CHOICE LINE from Strength In NUMBERS: “A man with intuition, a man who knows what’s right from wrong, a man who quotes from New Edition songs, a sweet soul with rugged features, manners, a stubble, you know, a modern day Barney Rubble”
ILLUSTRATION BY: JEREMY ARAMBULO
