The new wave of hip-hop has arisen a woke generation. From it, Xiuhtezcatl -- eighteen-year-old Indigenous rapper and activist -- has emerged, stirring the comatose with his music.

From performing at the Standing Rock encampment with Immortal Technique and Nahko to leading the Youth v. Gov. lawsuit against the Federal Government, Xiuhtezcatl's actions show his music is more than words.

Xiuhtezcatl grew up immersed in the indigenous Aztec traditions of his father and advocating for social and environmental justice with his mother.

Recently Xiuhtezcatl performed before the U.N. General Assembly, collaborated on stage and in the studio with Jaden Smith and Bassnectar, and appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher and The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

Additionally, he wrote the best-selling book, We Rise, and is featured in the next iconic series by Shepard Fairey, We The Future.
Write Minded
Write Minded
Based out of the Foothills of Colorado, Write Minded is a fresh and tasteful addition to the National music scene. With a unique mixture of hip-hop, rock, funk, reggae, and soul, Write Minded pushes the confining boundaries of genre to bring you something brand-new.
The group materialized when Sam and Jesse branched from a local collective and began focusing on an acoustic hip-hop set. In preparation for a larger gig, TurtleBear, Fofo, and Willy slid right in bringing flavors of psychedelic rock, true funk, electronic hip hop, and so many other tasty sounds that added a multitude of dynamics. What formed out of the experience was an exclusive blend of music that ultimately developed into Write Minded.
Things took off after the release of the Write Minded Demo, and just one year later, Write Minded released their debut album, "Eye Above".
