Download the brand new track from Drezus, entitled "Long Live the People" below!! (Simply Click "Download" to far right)

" I took a trip to Standing Rock in September for close to two weeks and my life has completely changed. It has given me a new sense of purpose in my life and music. I had been on the road for a couple of weeks before I was able to get back into the studio with NATO and had a lot of important music to make for my new album "Public Enemy". For a warm up track I decided to get down on this beat that I had found online from a song I had recently discovered, so I could give yall some free music right away. I was a big fan of the JIDENNA track entitled "Long Live the Chief" but felt I could do it some of my own justice. It is about some serious issues but the track itself is fun and lighthearted. Please enjoy fam."- Drezus
Day 2 at Standing Rock   3:10 PM Met the brother Happy American Horse (Middle) yesterday at main camp. This man sacrificed himself for the cause and managed to get the word out further than imagined. He was arrested and freed a few days later and promptly returned to camp. Legend. Also pictured is Myron Dewey from Digital Smoke Signals, he has been responsible for a large portion of the social media TRUTHS that have been coming out of the camp. My ride has also left back to Alaska today, I'm officially orphaned out. Camp time. #NoDapl

Day 1 at Standing Rock:   11:40PM   70 miles west of Standing Rock. Myself and my brothers from Alaska have been on the road for 2 days from Seattle. Our energy is up but very curious and there's a feeling of mystery or even tension, as we move forward. The Internet has been full of false info and all kinds of people pumping that usual newsroom fear into those who are watching the posts. And they ain't even anywhere near North Dakota, let alone Standing Rock!    I honestly don't know what to expect aside from a few photos I saw from the site. I just read that the homie Quese IMC has been arrested protesting with his camera and phone. I commend him for his bravery and pride but there is absolutely no way I can put myself in that danger. Especially as a Canadian with a bad record. My son lives down here and he deserves to have his dad around with free travel across the border. With that being said, I feel an overwhelming responsibility to my people and Mother Earth. I am ready to learn from other tribes present so that we can start to weave a stronger web across turtle island. This a fuckin awakening. For me, my people, the industry and even world leadership.    I have heard of many friends that are Sacred Stone and The Red Warrior Camp. Which aren't that far apart from what I hear. Once I get settled in, I will know the true difference between the camps, although I believe the Red Warrior Camp sounds like a more focused and intense group. This is my calling. Whether it be as a leader or a simple soldier. This is it. The spirits are out and now is the time for your prayers fam. I don't know my role in all of this just yet but we shall see. #NoDapl #idlenomore #indiansummer We hit the camp this morning. Check back for updates! #NODAPL #PROTECTTHESACRED
