The future is In Your Hands Now.
The 2012 Presidential Election is only two weeks away and just like four years ago, the future is in our hands. While we can all agree that our government is far from ideal, the choice before us on Nov. 6 is simple and vital. We can vote to return Barack Obama to office and keep America moving forward or vote for Mitt Romney and look forward to an America where corporations and the super wealthy gain more and more power while the working class continues to struggle to get by. We live in an age where our media has a distinct interest in edging these elections closer and closer and it’s evident already that a great deal of people who supported Obama in the 2008 election are disillusioned to the point that they aren’t voting at all. This is dangerously misguided and short-sighted.
In response to the apathetic sentiment that plagues our nation, Uncommon Records is releasing a free single from Short Fuze & Nasa, In Your Hands Now. This track takes us back through Obama’s historic election in 2008 and how we changed America when we worked together and voted. Just like history was made when Obama was elected, his re-election this year could be known as the moment we banded together and tossed back the threats of those that sought to separate us with hate and sell us off for profit. The song pulls no punches, directly addressing the short memories of the electorate and the elephant in the room, race. This single also features an Instrumental b-side produced by Nasa called 10 Thousand Dollar Bet which features cameos from Mitt Romney in his own words. The bonus that's included with the free download is a 1 minute snippet preview of Short Fuze & Nasa's upcoming vinyl only 7 inch. The limited edition orange vinyl single, Odd Future b/w Breakdance for the Def will be released in early 2013 and will be the first ever Uncommon release for the turntable.
