Togolese and the Like it or Not Crew (also known as L.I.O.N) have been producing dope resistive music out of Springfield MA. From highlighting cases of police brutality and wrongful incarceration in their city to speaking to the broader impacts of mass incarceration and the prison system these projects are dope expressions of resistance through art. The rhymes are on point and beats are neck-breaking so be sure to check ’em out here!
