Information on Not4Prophet:
Ant Loc is Nəxʷsƛ̕áy̕əm̕ and a member of the controversial and influential Indigenous hip hop/rap group Savage Family Seowa. He is from the illegally occupied territory now known as washington. His music is rooted in and influenced by the many lives that he has been touched by. His voice represents that of the oppressed, the have nots, the poor and unfortunate and the unmentionables of society. His gritty lyrical ability was forged in the streets and found further strength in the spiritual/cultural foundations of his ancestors.. He spits in an intelligent and precise manner that is rivaled by few. Ant Loc is mostly unheard of as of yet outside of Indigenous/Native communities but is now prepared to share the music that fulfills the prophecies of his people that will make the cities crumble.
These artists are revolutionary artists, that use art to continue to build movement and solidarity across all sectors. To educate and inform, to fight oppression and stand up for our rights, to inspire and fight back. To remember the importance of our planet and water. It is up to us to create a vision for our future.
We are looking for communities and organizations willing to sponsor this tour. To collaborate with you and your communities to take the opportunity to work together while there are amazing artists touring the West Coast. We are currently looking for funds to help cover the travel costs and overall logistical tour costs, plus an honorarium to the artists.

(In some cities: Performance also from Savage Family, native ancestry from northern Washington state. Also amazing lyrically, using hip hop to speak the truth about the reality of the Indigenous struggles and movement to defend lands and water and way of life).
