MP3: Appreciate Nato Caliph's Knowledge Cipher Tonight @ The Gramophone


One of the most upstanding members of The Force debuts his latest full-length release this evening at "Headquarters" the new weekly hip-hop night at The Gramophone in the Grove.

Nato Caliph
and has a new LP titled Knowledge Cipher (currently available at Vintage Vinyl, coming soon to iTunes) and a fresh new joint off the record called "Appreciation."

The song is all about old fashioned R-E-S-P-E-C-T.  Nato offers an explanation for why he writes "curse-free songs" that aren't about, "teaching the youth about new kicks, new clothes, new jewelry and, of course, new whips." The hook says it all: "This is hip-hop -- appreciate me."
