Exploring the stories of women who live by a ride-or-die philosophy

Roots Redemption presents…The Ride or Die Project Mixtape Volume!!!!

Mixtape Deejays

We are excited to announce that the much celebrated sound system Roots Redemption has worked with us to create The Ride or Die Project Mixtape Volume 1!!! Inspired by the stories and learnings we have gathered in this first stage of our research, this mixtape is dedicated to the individuals who trusted us with their narratives to help us write the first draft of our play Other Side of the Game.  This draft will be featured at the Piece of Mine Festival on Friday, September 13th, 2013.

Featuring music, poetry, and interludes from movies, this mixtape illustrates the energy behind parts of our project…please wait for future mixtapes to paint other sides…

* Important Note: This mixtape is a compilation of music, poetry and scenes that have inspired our process in various ways.  None of the artists featured are formally associated with the project.

The mixtape can be listened to and downloaded here:
